‘Coming to God without freedom is not coming to God’: Philosopher Charles Taylor on seeing God in church decline – Anglican Journal

"If you put yourself in the mindset of people who are concerned about the meaning of life, concerned about becoming better people, more loving, more open, etc., and are seeking in some way some discipline... when they go to the pews the least bad thing is that they don’t feel it’s very relevant!"

Watch Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry's video explaining why the U.S. census is important and why everyone should get involved.

2020 is way more than an election year! The Episcopal Church is an official partner for the 2020 Census with the U.S. Census Bureau! Watch Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry's video explaining why the U.S. census is important and why you should get involved.

For information on how to engage, including our census engagement toolkit, visit https://episcopalchurch.org/OGR/civic-engagement

As an official partner, The Episcopal Church can help make the count as accurate as possible. 132 federal programs plus private businesses, state, and local initiatives depend on Census data for effective distribution of resources, while congressional seats are apportioned according to the Census count.

Religious denominations and institutions are well-placed to reach historically hard-to-count populations, a critical goal of the Census Bureau. Research shows that someone is more likely to take the census if they hear about it from someone they trust.

The age of nones may favor churches that welcome doubters - Religion News Service

Frequent church attenders today are just as sure about their beliefs today as they were in the 1990s. And, surprisingly, the same is largely true among those who attend church infrequently; their certainty about God has declined only very slightly. In essence, the people who never darken a church door have become much less certain of what they believe about God. 🤔

religionnews.com (RNS) — Can people who are plagued with doubt feel welcomed by a church that is filled with those who are certain about what they believe?

More toddlers appear alone in court for deportation under family separation

“We were representing a 3-year-old in court recently who had been separated from the parents. And the child — in the middle of the hearing — started climbing up on the table.”

pbs.org Requiring unaccompanied minors to go through deportation alone is not a new practice. But in the wake of the Trump administration’s controversial family separation policy, more young children — including toddlers — are being affected than in the past.

DENIM SPIRIT: 2020 is here .... finally!

A look back at the fate of long term strategic visions of 2020, including the Episcopal Church’s and how they’ve fared (Opinion)

“Again, to the credit of some of those Episcopal big thinkers back in 2000 when they were unfolding the 2020 Initiative, they focused less on numbers and more on culture. Specifically, they wanted to attack the “we’ve never done it that way before” mentality so pervasive in the tradition-bound denomination. That part may have worked. They also were concerned with developing mission-mindedness, and that may have worked too. (The Episcopal Church 2/12/2002).”
