the Magazine – what is it?

by

Welcome to the first post of our newest Episcopal Café section, the Magazine.  Our hope for this new effort is to invite many voices to tell the story, the lived experience, of the Episcopal Church.  We’ll be doing this through videos, essays, art, interviews, narratives, essays and whatever else we might come up with to share the church’s story.

Each month we’ll select a different theme to build our features around.  Our editorial team will be developing features, but we’re also inviting your submissions as well.  For this month, we’ll be looking at ‘Perceptions of the Church,’ and in the future the current theme will be announced on our  Speak Up! page.  You can send along your submission to magazine@episcopalcafe.com.  We’re looking for original content as much as possible, but will consider previously published items; please let us know where it was originally used in your submission.

Ours is a large and diverse church, spread across all of the United States and into several other nations around the world.  We want to hear stories from all over about what this church means to you; how it has shaped your life, your enthusiasms, your disappointments, your relation with and understanding of God.  We’re the curators, but you are the storytellers; yours’ is the story of God’s people in this time – and we want it to be told to the world in all its messy beauty.

Who was the genius that designed the newest version of the roadside "Episcopal Church" sign: the one on which the tiny Episcopal Shield can hardly be seen.

Andy, just as there are latest-model Rolls Royces on the road as well as jalopies held together with baling wire, so do Episcopal church signs come in various
"incarnations."

I admit that some signs have seen better days and need to be replaced. I also wish that the manufacturers would make sturdier, longer-lasting signs.

By the way, I drive a 2005 Prius with 116,000 miles on it. It no longer looks showroom-new.

Why do you have rusty church signs as the opening graphic for this part of you site? Is there an implicit commentary there?

This is an improvement. However, the pages are
slow to come up on the screen, as if they were trying to decide whether to get out of bed.

Hope you can fix this glitch. Thank you.
