RNS covers Episcopal Church restructuring conversation

The Episcopal Church is featured prominently in a story by Daniel Burke of Religion News Service about the efforts of mainline Protestant churches to streamline their governance structures.

Chief Operating Office Bishop Stacy Sauls: “We’ve been operating in a system where certain expertise resides at the churchwide level and pronouncements get sent down the pipeline. That model is last century. It’s a radically different time now.”

President of the House of Deputies Bonnie Anderson: “I believe that we need more resources and authority at the local level. The days of the big corporate front office, if not gone already, are dwindling pretty fast.”

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.
