Imaginary archeological discovery sheds new light on early Christianity.
The words on Liberty’s pedestal were always a hope, an almost eschatological vision of who we hoped to be and what we intended to be for the rest of the world…
Is this about our hypocrisy or about our becoming? Certainly the freedom we live is deeply incomplete so long as it doesn’t belong to all of us. Biblically and theologically, it’s also incomplete if “freedom” is simply opportunity for unhampered exercise of our own whim and protection of fiercely held opinions and judgments of others from any criticism or constraints.
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.
