Presiding Bishop preaches in Washington, DC

Presiding Bishop preaches in Washington, DC

Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori preached at this morning’s Eucharist for the Advocacy to Challenge Domestic Poverty, a three-day gathering of 50 bishops and young adults from eight domestic dioceses of the Episcopal Church (sponsored by the church and Bishops Working for a Just World) in Washington, DC.

The entire sermon can be read in Episcopal News Service, but here’s an excerpt:

Our hope lies in expecting to find God there ahead of us, already at work transforming hearts and minds toward that vision of eternity. I would challenge you to expect to meet the image of God in your visits this day – in people who disagree with you, or seem not to listen. Search for God’s image anyway. Share what you know of the image of God in the poor, in yourself and in your neighbor. You’ve had a remarkable experience of meeting the image of God in this gathering, which has now become a body of friends. Can you share that light with those you meet today?

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.
