What We Shall Become: The Future and Structure of the Episcopal Church
Edited by well-known Episcopal leaders. Designed to facilitate the church’s dialogue on structure. Presents viewpoints representative of the diversity of the church. Structure—throughout the denomination and within local parishes—is the hot-topic conversation of the day. How do we order ourselves for mission? What structure is helpful and what hinders our work? Who holds power and how do they wield it? From the triennial budget based on the Five Marks of Mission, to the decision to relocate the Episcopal Church Center away from its current headquarters in New York City, how the denomination will be structured for the 21st century remains the critically defining question. This edited volume will provide thoughtful resources from a wide range of perspectives, as well as foundational materials on theology, history, and ecclesiology to facilitate the dialogue.
