Episcopal News Service reports that the Bishop of California, Marc Andrus has given the inaugural Green Cross award to Wendell Berry:

On the evening of October 30, 65 Bay Area philanthropists gathered to support Kentuckians for the Commonwealth and honor preeminent man of letters and environmental activist, Wendell Berry. The Rt. Rev. Marc Handley Andrus, Ms. Eliza Brown, and her cousin Mr. Owsley Brown hosted the gathering. All three have roots in the Southeastern United States and long-standing commitments to environmental issues.

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.
