Read, Mark, Learn, and Inwardly Digest



Just now

Always so

Truly so

The light will come out of the darkness

Out of all the struggles a great light will come

A new you too

In the harshest cold the weather is sunny

We mourn with those who experience the hardships of winter, may we commit to help them

The eye of the storm and in the shadows of death

May we fear no one but God

May we learn not to fear


Live on in winter, summer, spring and autumn


Spring (imagine that)



Into the moment

Heart and mind and soul and strength

One God

One Aim

One Destiny

One one one

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.
