Seeking to widen coverage of intersections of faith and the sciences, the Episcopal News Service today launches a new online forum titled "FEAST: Faith, Environment, Action, Science, Technology" which can be found at: http://www.episcopalchurch.org/3577_59978_ENG_HTM.htm.
The online forum will take initial shape throughout Eastertide 2005, with new packets of reporting posted every Monday through the upcoming liturgical season, and continue with breaking news and occasional features thereafter.
Central to the coverage will be the work of several Episcopal Church Center offices and committees/commissions of General Convention, as well as projects taken up by congregations, dioceses, and church provinces.
The coverage includes a call for people of faith to "grow in understanding," one of four themes currently guiding the work of the Episcopal Church's Office of Communication (see full complement at http://www.comeandgrow.org/).
Environmental protection and sustainability is further supported in numerous of the church's liturgical expressions, which will also be highlighted within the online forum. Underscoring the importance of individual and corporate responsibility for preserving the abundance of God's creation, the online forum will also echo the familiar liturgical response: "Therefore, let us keep the FEAST."
