New: 10/6 TLC Online

The October 6 edition of The Living Church is available online to registered subscribers.

This Education issue includes an article by G. Jeffrey MacDonald on the Episcopal School of Nashville, which is creating a school from scratch in modular buildings on a rented parking lot. MacDonald also reports on “Messy Church,” a service format that has kids dragging their parents to church. Cæli enarrant from Christopher Wells considers the evangelical basis of Christian Education.

Mark Michael reports on the Order of Naucratius, a ministry founded by two friends from seminary to provide fresh fish and game to feed the hungry in two states.

Kirk Petersen has news reports on disciplinary charges filed against the Bishop of Albany; on the bishop from Hurricane Irma’s outreach to victims of Hurricane Dorian; and on Virginia Theological Seminary committing $1.7 million to reparations for slavery.

Plus there’s the winning essay from TLC’s 10th annual Student Essays in Christian Wisdom competition, along with book reviews and People & Places.
