We are listening, and we thank you for speaking up strongly when we weren’t listening hard enough. We know there is more conversation needed.
After 141 posts, we will no longer publish The Daily Sip, a weekly column written by Charles LaFond. We are grateful to him for his years of writing for the Episcopal Cafe.
Our editorial team will redouble our work in vetting all future content to make sure all posts are grounded in the Gospel and that all content is free from discriminatory, racist or toxic theology. We regret we published a post last Sunday that included content that was racially stereotyping; this content became even more hurtful following the shootings in Atlanta in the days following. We stand in solidarity with all who grieve and with all who are working for racial equity and for the cessation of gun violence.
We apologize for the hurt and mistrust our previous posts have caused. With God’s help, we will strive to do better and we hope to retain your trust.
Keep speaking up. You may send emails to Feedback@EpiscopalCafe.com. You will hear back from us. We value the forum for conversation that our content and platforms create, especially the constructive conversations that are respectful even when there are differing viewpoints. We value you as readers, for your passion for the Episcopal Church and for the work of the Episcopal Cafe.
