The fact is, Episcopalians share a great deal with other Christians, which has made it easy for us to work with Christians from other denominations in all kinds of ways. We should celebrate those commonalities and live into our common Christian identity.
But a second fact is that being Episcopalian means something special. We have our own way of being Christian. It is not totally unique—and that is a good thing. But when I chat with Christians from other denominations, I am sometimes struck by little differences that make me more aware of what it means to follow “The Episcopal Way.”
With that in mind, I invite you all to attend our formation series on “The Episcopal Way” on Sunday mornings at 11:30 (or as close as I can get to 11:30!). We have already had one session on the Episcopal way of using the Bible. In October, we have three more sessions: on Prayer and Spirituality; Sacraments and Worship; and Our Baptismal Covenant. We will have a final session in November on Our Tradition.
Sometimes we take for granted how wonderful the Episcopal Way really is. There are lots of good ways to be Christian, of course. But ours is a really good way. Please join the conversation. And let’s continue to walk the Episcopal way, following our Lord, who is Himself the ultimate Way!
