Companions in Christ

“There’s also the very real truth that Episcopalians want things done ‘correctly.’ Changes to liturgy, even small ones, are a big deal. When you’re messing with ‘the way we’ve always done things’ the situation can get ugly. It is pretty groundbreaking to bring in new pronouns and new ways of referring to our siblings.”

A Pentecost Story

“As all parents and regular babysitters of toddlers know, no son of Thetis ever ran faster than a toddler intent on eluding capture, and this one was no exception. He streaked down the aisle like Usain Bolt setting a new world record for the 100-metre sprint, legs flashing in the light from the stained-glass windows.”

Committing to Christ

“Fasting from this sacrament, I wonder if there is anything in this time of social distancing that could possibly be as powerful in linking me with my fellow parishioners as the sacrament of Eucharist is.  Would there be anything even half as powerful?”
