Jordan Hylden, a contributor to The Living Church and its weblog, Covenant, is among the Episcopal Church Foundation’s 2014 Fellows:
“When we look back on 50 years of ECF Fellows we are amazed at the impact they have had at all levels of the Episcopal Church,” said Donald V. Romanik, ECF President. “This year’s recipients continue the legacy of dedication, passion, and vision for the Church that is embodied by all our ECF Fellows.”
… Jordan is a doctoral candidate in theology and ethics at Duke University, where his dissertation research focuses on the work of the French-American philosopher Yves R. Simon and other mid-20th century Catholic figures who helped the church take a fresh look at liberal democracy from within the Catholic theological tradition.
Jordan believes that there is “a need for theological work that integrates the call for justice and peace within the language of the worshiping church, neither sacrificing the urgency of that call nor failing to see its connection to the theological grammar of our prayer book as a whole.”
Jordan serves part-time as curate and Assistant for Christian Formation at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Columbia, SC. A 2006 graduate of Harvard College, he received his M.Div. in 2010 from Duke Divinity School. He is a frequent contributor to The Living Church magazine, where he also serves as a board member, and is co-editing a collection of essays on justification in the Anglican tradition with Daniel Westberg.
