Freelance Anglican Missioner within TEC
What you do for fun and re-creation?
Hang with my church community and friends, enjoy good food and cocktails, pray the daily office, listen electronic music (down tempo, drum and bass, hip hop, 4x4, illbient, idm) mac computer geeking, Belgian beer geekery, travel, movies, writing, instigating change and emergence!
What do you see as some of the biggest challenges facing Anglicans today?
To give URGENT and FOCUSED RESOURCES and ATTENTION to growing in the 'Five Marks of Mission,' especially 'evangelical outreach' amongst emerging generations and to bless, release and credential solid, young missioners to LEAD TEC in incubating and planting new churches and ministries that are 'native' within today's culture and capable of speaking into the brokenness, hurts and longings of our world, against injustice, poverty and oppression in our world, and nurturing the capacities for beauty , goodness, action and service within our cultures and our world, as our human participation in the Reign/Kingdom of God.
What do you see as some of the biggest opportunities for Anglicans today?
The same as above !
What do you want Anglimergent to be? and what other Anglimergent resources, gatherings, activities or events would you find helpful for your ministry?
A place for Anglicans to be friends across tired, modern 'liberal/conservative' divides. A place to cast dreams, share resources, bear one another's burdens and celebrate life together in our communion.

About Karen and Church of the Apostles, Seattle

I am a freelance Anglican Missioner. Seeking to be a regional Canon Missioner in the NW (NW TEC Bishops, do call !) and I'm excited to do whatever I can to participate in emergence within the world wide Anglican tribe. - I am also one of two Anglicans on the board of Emergent Village.

I'm director of Episcopalvillage.org Via EPV we curate
- Diocesan Learning Parties for parish teams.
- Diocesan Learning Days or retreats for clergy.
- 'Missioner in residence' weeks at seminaries.
- Seminary classes and J-term groups coming to Seattle.
- Sabbatical clergy for live-work-reflect 'Emmergence
(1-3 weeks) in Seattle or Portland, OR
- Emerging church planters for live-work-reflect
residencies (10 days to 14 days)

I also do keynote speaking at diocesan events on pretty much everything related to Anglican approaches to and giftings for emerging church and mission (liturgy/ alternative worship, church plants, fresh expressions of church, missiology, neo monastic church, empowering the next generations in mission...). - EMAIL ME if you plan to visit Seattle or if you have a diocesan or national Anglican event you want me to be part of. -

Of Pomp and Circumstance + How to move forward?


A very hard to read article from the Guardian UK newspaper.

It stings, but it found in it a real call to ponder church renewal and how the way of Jesus can in become…

Thanks so much! I just came across this page today while I was looking at some of our diocesan pages.

Hi Karen, I looked at the June 10-12 event descriptino, but I didn't see anything that described who was talking about or presenting on what, specifically, on Friday. Can you tell me more about what the actual agenda/topics/presentations will be and who is doing them. Did I just miss that more detailed information in the post?

I am unable to get us connected with Courtney this afternoon as I had hoped. I will get back to you after your trip to Chicago to see if we can reschedule. Hope Chicago goes well. I'll be interested to hear.

Thanks, Fred

Hi Karen -- quick question (I hope you're a/the person to ask): I want to post under the Ministry with Youth, but that option isn't available in the drop-down list of choices. Thoughts?

and i'm looking forward to visiting - this is all pretty cool!
I'll look forward to the list nearer the time.

Hi Karen -- thanks for the welcome! I'd love to see any sort of fresh conversations about the church on here -- what TEC can be in the world, how we're serving that mysterious 20-30s population, what ministry looks like with technology . . . I'll probably post a conversation to the youth ministry forum as soon as I figure out how. I'll have to check about the clergy conference in Mundelein, but good luck there! Nice to meet you,

Thanks, Karen. Your comment did come through.

K--I sat down with your bishop yesterday (were your ears burning), and we had a great visit. Summer and fall look like they've already filled up, but a parish on Mercer Island has been talking about having me up for a retreat, and Greg threatens to have me up for clergy conference sometime. I do hope to be up that way soon, but it's not on the books right now.

Hope you are well!

Great to meet you, I hope we'll meet again!

Hi Karen,

This is a great idea! Way to go coming up with it. COTA was actually the one thing I found on the internet that was close to what we wanted to do. It helped me articulate Anglicanism (Since I was the only Anglican...and the only liturgical person of the founding group.)
