The Episcopal New Yorker Archives

Vol. 89 No.4: Winter 2013

The next issue of the Episcopal New Yorker has evangelism as its theme - an activity that reputedly makes Episcopalians nervous, but which many of them get on with nevertheless. We have a discussion site dedicated to the topic, and encourage you to have your say, briefly or at length: please go to www.evangelism.episcopalnewyorker.com to check it out.

 

News of the suffragan election on December 7, of the diocesan convention on November 9, impressions of the first Diocesan Indaba weekend, and more.

Vol. 86 No.1: Spring
The Spring 2010 Episcopal New Yorker has "mission as part of congregational life" as its theme. More by chance than by judgment, both of the main features in the issue touch on this -- the cover story about Haitians in New York in the aftermath of January's earthquake, and a report on the visit of the Archbishop of Canterbury to St. Ann's in the Bronx and a feeding program on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Other topics covered are the theological argument for mission/outreach, prison ministries, All Our Children, Carpenter's Kids, the role of an early 20th century rector of Calvary Church in the formation of AA, the environment...

It also includes an interview with the Archbishop of Wales on the occasion of his delivery of the Hobart Lecture, a personal and highly moving account of her spiritual journey  when diagnosed and treated for breast cancer by the Rev. Rhonda Rubinson, and a contrarian view of the role that government should play in improving the lot of the poor, by a parishioner of St. Augustine's in Croton. 
Vol. 85 No.3: September/October 2009
The September/October issue looks back to General Convention and forward to November's diocesan convention. The lead story is the draft report of the Special Committee on Diocesan Budget Process and Assessment, and its recommendations for changes in the assessment and in the adjustment process.
