Weekend Roundup for August 31

Weekend Roundup for August 31

Many stories from around the Episcopal/Anglican world emerge in any given week that we aren’t able to develop further here at the Cafe. So, here is a roundup of stories you might have missed.


Episcopal Church
Two stories about bells



Great Britain
A blog post from a priest in the CoE fed up with the status quo – specifically regarding safeguarding


A group of CoE bishops (who are members of the House of Lords) have published an open letter in opposition to a No Deal Brexit


One more on the Brexit mess, from the Primus of Scotland:



Hong Kong
What is the place of Christian efforts of reconciliation in the ongoing protests?



Uganda elected a new Archbishop; no sign that his policies will be much different than his predecessor

and a profile of the outgoing Primate



Other Interesting Items
Global interfaith group pledges to work on climate change and poverty


Christian Century has a good profile of the late Rachel Held Evans, “the CS Lewis of her day”


This is one of the articles that makes you just go “hmmm, I never knew that was an issue for anyone” – are protestants who become Roman “converts” or something else?


This one kind of fits into the above category as well – a dispute amongst exorcists

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.
