People on the ordination track will have to help the laity find the answers to these same questions. I’m thankful that the professors at Perkins require us to think through theological material and ask ourselves what is at stake at the deepest level. The technical language tends to drop off, and both questions and answers become simple but never simplistic.

Great to see Frank “back in action” again — not that he ever left! And glad he’s lending his support to the “Seabury experiment” for which I have great hopes.

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.
