The Collect Call: For St. James the Just & Social Media Sunday

12079839_10153652891952692_4100586451912669394_o

St. James was known for reconciliation. There are lots of ways to do that, but one way is not to feed to social media trolls. We figure out which St. James it is we’re talking about, then talk to Carolyn Clement about Social Media Sunday.

An October of Prayer: Celebrating the Installation of Bishop Michael Curry

The Acts 8 Movement invites you to join with us in a month-long cycle of prayer for our church in the lead-up to the installation of Bishop Curry as the 27th Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, on Sunday, November 1, at noon Eastern time. Each day on the calendar, beginning October 1, holds a specific intention for prayer, ranging from the local to the churchwide.

If you’d like to use prayers from your Book of Common Prayer for this, there are many prayers devoted to the church on pages 816-819.

Please feel free to share this calendar with your friends, social media contacts, and congregations (with attribution). And if you’re so moved, post about your daily prayers on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using the hashtag #octoberprayer.

This podcast might have jumped the shark some time ago, but this time even we know it. This episode for St. Michael & All Angels is an epic fail or an epic…something. We’ll let you decide.

Holy Cross Day is the only day in the church year that honors an object – and an instrument of execution at that. Brendan & Holli discuss the oddity of giving honor to the means of state-sanctioned killing.

We’re all agreed that we love St. Mary the Virgin, but there’s a tremendous amount of ambiguity around her birth, life, and death in the church. Also, how do you deal with the incarnate God as a teenager? Featuring, once again, special guest Derek Olsen.
