“My time with my friend showed me that rare gift of contentment and wonder that is so easy to lose. She treasured each moment, and that was where her heart was.”
Jesus rarely really looked back. He strides, and he looks forward (“face set towards Jerusalem”) but never really looks back. Jesus is in no way passive. He is very active – calling out injustice, speaking the truth – cost what it will and lead where it may. And it leads to torture, humiliation and death. Often. And it does for us too if we are courageous enough to be leaders and not sycophants.
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.
