TREC wants feedback

TREC wants feedback

The Taskforce to Reimagine The Episcopal Church (TREC) is looking for help:

The members of the Taskforce want to hear the memories, hopes and dreams that people have for The Church. We are trying to reach as many people as we can over the next few months. We will use what we hear to help us shape recommendations for The Church’s structure, administration and governance.

Please take the opportunity to share your perspectives with us.

Follow the TREC link to their page to participate.

I believe we are in need of a radical change in governance. I hope that TREC’s mandate is to serve as a catalyst for change on that scale. That would include educating us about the reasons for change, so that we are the ones saying we need change — and asking what changes do you recommend? Gathering our input and feedback along the way is part of that process, but not all of it.

I am wondering how they are going to collate this information. Telling stories is fun but murder for statisticians.

My cynical nature built on years of re-structuring and re-visioning is that this will end up like all the rest — the church will go on and innovation will occur out in the field and spread to those who are engaged by it.

Really? This is it? Only took the first twenty responses to see all the usual positions laid out. You asked “Mom, Flag, and Apple Pie” questions that always draw “Mom, Flag, and Apple Pie” responses.

There is nothing new in this approach, nothing out of the box or edgy. Very disappointing.

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.
