    What Can We Bring to the Table?

      Being Black is hard enough, as the people in the world see me for my color first, but it is even hard in the church. I was on a commission in the Diocese where an event was being planned. One thing that was wanted for this event was for each of the ethnic groups to...

    Becoming An Episcopalian

    I was born, baptised, raised, confirmed and married into the Roman Catholic tradition of Christianity. I always found comfort in the liturgical cyle of the church year and found great meaning in the mass and all the symbols and traditions within the church. As a sect of...

    I became Episcopalian

    because I did not see a good enough reason to go to a separate church as my then boyfriend now husband, and he was way more involved in the Episcopal Church than I was in the Roman Catholic, so I made the pragmatic decision to start going to the Episcopal Church. However, just...

    On My Journey

    For me, coming from a fairly conservative religious background and being "evangelical" the transition has not always been an easy one.  Moving from a world that was easily defined as "black and white" and if the bible says it; that settles it kind of...

    Fun Word

    I'm not. But my adoptive mother is. I remember passing a cool looking church as a child and asking her what religion's church it was. She said Episcopalian and told me that that was how she was raised. I thought it was the absolute coolest word ever. It rolls off the tongue...

    I Am Young And Episcopalian

    Episcopalian to me isn't a very exciting religion. I was raised in a church I spent only 8 years at. I barely go to church now . . . My best friend still goes to the same church. I met my best friend at the church when I was only 1 or 2. I am 13 now she is 14 we have been friends...

    A Long Way Around...

    Sometimes, I feel like the prodigal son, except that, as the story goes, I didn't live it up as much he did, nor was I quite as rebellious.  Not too long after my confirmation in the Episcopal church at thirteen, I discovered the girls in the local southern Baptist...

    Aaahhh. Home At Last.

    After growing up in a nightmarish church, I pretty much avoided all denominations and congregations. Although I am Christian, I am very often ashamed of my fellow believers' approach to the Christian life and their view of the "outside" world. I think I will feel...
