News and Readings:


The Church, the Body of Christ, is essentially progressive: we are making our way forward into God’s vision for the New Jerusalem. The Church is not essentially about preservation. We are grounded in the past, we owe a great debt to those who have gone before us, to be sure, but we don’t live in their world.

-Br. Mark Brown 
Society of Saint John the Evangelist
