Parish as Abbey: Third space and spiritual place for mission


“Third place perichoresis” describes an approach to engaging mission that involves the re:imagining of old church buildings into fresh, open, public spaces. Karen Ward talks about how the love and relationality of God can be expressed “beyond the walls of the church, through the walls of the church”.

Karen Ward was the first urban Abbess of Church of the Apostles, Seattle, and is now a freelance Anglican Missioner within The Episcopal Village.
