Well done, Texas! May God bless your conference with much eternal fruit.

Ann Fontaine

I will be interested when the Dio of TX welcomes all. Otherwise this is just a facade.


I think the video is very good, but so far as I can discover, the quote ‘Evangelism is just one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread.’ is from D. T. Niles in his book That They May Have Life. As one of my correspondents on Facebook told me, ‘Niles was a Sri Lankan evangelist and ecumenical leader who deserves to be much more widely known than he is.’

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.
