The Rev. Mike Angell is the rector of The Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion in University City. He and his husband Ellis Anderson recently had their civil marriage blessed as part of the Sunday morning service at Christ Church Cathedral. June marks LGBT Pride month across the United States. Mike will lead a discussion about the intersections of faith and Pride, how the LGBT community’s growing visible presence is re-shaping our interpretation of tradition, scripture, and even the practice of faith.

The Rev. Pamela Dolan will be our speaker on May 5. Pamela is the rector of Good Shepherd Episcopal church in Town and Country, and a regular contributor to the St. Louis Post Dispatch. Her church started an urban farm garden last year. Pamela will lead a discussion on “Green Faith,” the intersections of ecology, theology, and gardening.
From Pamela’s latest article in the Post Dispatch:
Last spring my parish started a garden. We called it a community garden, because we really want community members involved, but in fact it’s more like what some are now referring to as food pantry or food bank gardens. We grow vegetables in order to give them away to programs that feed the hungry. It’s a simple model, and can be practiced by churches (or mosques or synagogues or meeting houses) in urban and suburban settings, not just by those congregations with acres of tillable land to spare.
