Mission: asking people what they need that the church could provide

Mission: asking people what they need that the church could provide

Missioners are asking people what do you need that the church could provide as they develop programs for their neighborhoods. Faith and Leadership reports:

Victoria Campbell, the head of Richmond’s community gardening effort, flits from planter to planter, pinching weeds from among the squash, beans, Swiss chard and sweet potatoes sprouting in the giant tubs that ring this downtown parking lot in Virginia’s capital.

All the while, she’s talking a blue streak about the city’s efforts to transform vacant green space, promote care for the environment and teach children in urban housing developments the value of growing their own food.

Matching her step for step and furiously scribbling notes is the Rev. Melanie Mullen, the downtown missioner at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 10 blocks away.

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.
