The June 15 edition of The Living Church is available online to registered subscribers. In this edition TLC Correspondent G. Jeffrey MacDonald tells the story of Good Shepherd Church in East Chicago, Indiana, which has survived and grown by bringing Anglo-Catholic piety and practical comforts to poor neighbors.

“It’s always been true for the Church: if it pays attention to the needy, it finds the treasures,” says the Rev. Canon Cecil Phelps, who has served at Good Shepherd for more than 30 years.
