Presiding Bishop joins the orange stole movement

Presiding Bishop joins the orange stole movement

On June 5th, many Episcopal clergy and congregations followed the call to #WearOrange. The national day for gun violence awareness was celebrated on June 2nd.

The Facebook page, Episcopalians Against Gun Violence, posted a round-up of photos from the web, including one of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry in his own orange stole. A small selection is posted below.

Did your congregation and clergy go orange this Sunday? What do you think of this form of witness?

Was orange really an appropriate color? It has offensive connotations for Irish Catholics.

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.
