• Edited by a well-known Episcopal leader

• 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.

Winnie Varghese serves as Priest and Director of Community Outreach at historic Trinity Episcopal Church-Wall Street in New York. She is a popular blogger on Huffington Post and gained respect for her work as rector of St. Mark's in the Bowery, a diverse, progressive church in New York. She is the chair of the board of The Episcopal Service Corps and leads social action efforts at the national and local levels. She has also served on The Executive Council of the Episcopal Church and as voting secretary of General Convention.
