…as we discern how we use our public witness, Episcopalians, I hope we will remember that it IS a witness. That we ARE being watched. That people are learning something about this Jesus of ours whenever they look at us.
No matter how much we arrange, we micro-manage, and we attempt to suit ourselves, the seed of the gospel still sprouts where it will, and the rich earth of faith we have been given will produce of itself.
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.
