A diverse slate that varied from David Reed, to David Read!

Seriously—assuming “Ram” is short for “Ramon” not “Ramona”—an all-male slate in 2014 is shameful.

God gifts and calls the Imago Dei made female, as much as made male. If the Diocese of West Texas couldn’t find even *one* female candidate for their bishop, doesn’t mean God didn’t make her. It’s that they weren’t looking.

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.
