Preaching Newtown

Preaching Newtown

As we mentioned yesterday, bishops, clergy and lay leaders from around the Episcopal Church have been attempting to make sense of and otherwise respond to the horrific shootings in Newtown, Connecticut last Friday. Here are a few links to some of the sermons and statements that have come to our attention.

The Rev. Robyn Barnes of Montana.

The Rev. Alex Dyer of Connecticut.

The Rev. Lowell Grisham of Arkansas.

The Rev. Ron Pogue of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.

The Rev. Maggie Dawn, who is teaching at the Yale Divinity School wrote on her blog about on writing prayers after a tragedy.

Bishop Dan Edwards of Nevada has also written on his blog about American’s relationship with guns.

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.
