Network of Episcopal Clergy Associations - new website,

NECA (The Network of Episcopal Clergy Associations) has a new website and is kick-starting its way into the 21st Century, and just in time. 

Events at General Seminary, the state of seminary education elsewhere, the move to contract workers and greater and greater limitations on the safety-net provided by the notion of tenure as rector, the lack employment by some and security of position by others, and the general misuse of the resources provided by retired clergy, all contribute to a time when clergy face considerable challenges.  Support for clergy by clergy is a vital part of the overall health of clergy, and NECA can be a resource for individuals, churches and dioceses as all try to make best use of, and provide best support for, the ordained.

Go visit the site HERE.

And, by the by, join up in any way possible!
