Episcopal Church needs to look for #MeToo in the details

(RNS) — The Episcopal Church’s General Convention, which begins this week (July 5) in Austin, Texas, will consider more than 20 resolutions put forward by an all-female special committee on sexual abuse, harassment and exploitation. If we pass these resolutions, however, it is essential that we not sit back and say we’ve done what the moment — and the gospel — demands.

COMMENTARY: Opening doors and liberating churches from 'sacred spaces'

(RNS) Although church conventions tend to get attention for decisions on sexuality and gender, I am more intrigued by a movement among Episcopalians to sell their national headquarters building in New York City. More open doors, I say, and more out-there ministry in a dangerous world. By Tom Ehrich.
