What is #myepiscopalidentity?

by

In light of the ongoing debates within the Anglican Communion, we’ve been wondering how Episcopalians understand their identity as Episcopalians.  So, we thought we’d just ask.  You can submit a regular submission for publication or write a post on your own blog or tumblr or add a photo to Instagram or maybe even make a new Pinterest board or whatever.  Just use the hashtag #myepiscopalidentity and send us a Facebook message, Tweet or email (newsteam@episcopalcafe.com) to give us a heads up.  We’ll share as many as we can and we look forward to hearing from you!

I was baptized as a baby, in the Church of England. I've exercised my priesthood in TEC for the past fifteen years. I have family in the Church of the Province of the West Indies. I have family in the Scottish Episcopal Church and the Church in Wales. I consider myself to be Merely Anglican.

I am one of those ecumenical Episcopalians. I attend church Sundays and on Saint days and Wednesday meetings. I have been a S.S. teacher and lay positions in worship. I am going thru a period of discernment. I am a Liberal.
I spent 10 years at an ELCA Lutheran in my 40s.
Also, lived in a small village and the Catholics were the only sacremental church, so attended w/o taking sacrament.
I am now a member of an Episcopal church and a really liberal Methodist church.

The church of my youth became the church of my dreams -- love, joy, and peace. For all

I was born and raised in the Episcopal church. I believe I have
not considered myself as a strong and active Episcopalian, since
for the past twelve years, I no longer drive and have had to depend on someone to take me to church. (I was in a big car
accident that has made my right leg permanently disabled) I have also fallen twice and have had a broken tibia. Therefore inhibiting me to attend church on a regular basis for the past six years. But I always persevere and always return to The Cathedral of St. James in South Bend,IN.

Mary Beth, God certainly understands your difficulty in physically attending church. To be a faithful child of Christmas does not require physical attendance. Ask your priest if you can receive home communion and visits. The important thing is your continued relationship with God.
