For the Idea Pile: Members of Church of the Ascension in Twin Falls, Idaho, will spend part of Tuesday walking different routes in a one-mile radius in an effort to learn more about the area around their church building.

When members meet Tuesday at the church, they’ll be assigned different routes in a one-mile radius. Members, whom Seles said should invite a friend to join them on the walk, are to be observant as to what they see and who they meet.

“We draw farther than one mile,” she said, “but we thought we’d start with that and see what we learn.”

They’ll start at 7 p.m., and members should plan to meet back at the church by about 8:30 p.m., Seles said, where they’ll talk about what they learned on their walks.

This walk coincides with the national Jane’s Walk USA, named for writer/activist Jane Jacobs.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
