Our calendar of saints remembers Leo the Great today, even though I don’t think there’s a single Episcopal church named for him.

Some people think General Convention is a bit like Brigadoon, a small city that appears for a day and then fades away into the mist for the next hundred years.  General Convention has a shorter shelf life, but there’s something apt about the comparison.  The residents gather, reconnect, love and celebrate, avoid changing anything, and […]

On Sunday a thousand General Convention-goers drove to the small town of Taylor, Texas to protest the administration’s policy of separating migrant families arrested at the border.
