about

Insights from a pioneering leader in world religion, on the intersections of the sacred & the secular.

As Christiansindeed as people of faith of any traditionwe are called to tend to the needs of the least among us. Our response to them must be the response of faith. God gives us a new heart to do this work, and every time we gather to do it, God offers a pacemaker jolt to tweak our hearts rhythm. The challenge is this: will our hearts respond with a strengthened beat, in tune with Gods own heartbeat, sending more life out into the world?
from the Introduction

Explore our connectionsas human beings with each other, as one nation with all other nations, as the human species with the whole of our environmentthrough the lens of faith. Katharine Jefferts Schori, presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church, examines these connections as she looks at the intersections of faith with the major issues of our day:
  • How does faith speak to poverty, climate change, the economy, health care, and what is the faith response?
  • How can believers from many faith traditions find common ground while honoring the Divine, serving one another, and creating deeper community?
  • How do we best use the resources of faith to connect us to the hearts of our neighbors and to the heart of God?Katharine Jefferts Schori is the presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church. Prior to her ordination to the priesthood in 1994, she was a visiting assistant professor in Oregon State Universitys Department of Religious Studies, a visiting scientist at Oregon States College of Oceanography, and an oceanographer with the National Marine Fisheries Service in Seattle. She became the Anglican Communions first female primate in 2006. She is the author of A Wing and a Prayer: A Message of Faith and Hope and The Gospel in the Global Village: Seeking Gods Dream of Shalom.
