ABOUT

All the Gospel That’s Fit to Preach! Sermons and (less frequently) blog posts from the Revd. Jady Koch, Associate Minister at St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal Church in Louisville, KY. You can follow updates via Twitter: jadykoch and under ITunes at, you guessed it, Pelican Pie. 

About the name: Legend has it that, when necessary, the Pelican would feed its young with its own blood and, on account of this symbolic connection with the Cross, the Pelican was chosen as one of the heraldic symbols of Thomas Cranmer, the first Archbishop of Canterbury. The title of this podcast comes from a hymn attributed to Thomas Aquinas called Adoro te devote, which refers to Jesus as the Pie Pelicane–the Pelican of Mercy. (It’s also the state bird of my beloved Louisiana)
