Bishop Laura J. Ahrens writes; “as the day wore on, the shirt took on a different meaning to me. As I encountered colleagues and community members and followed social media, seeing friends, acquaintances, strangers, politicians, and one older woman walking slowly, but importantly, wearing orange and attaching a sign to her walker #wearorange, the feeling of the day took a different shape.”
The debate over guns in our society needs to be just that—a debate, with the willingness to listen. Too often, tragedies happen at the end of a gun barrel, and how many of those times would the people involved give anything to take back what had happened?
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.
