March 22- The Episcopal Way

The Episcopal Way
Sundays in Lent, 12:45- 1:45 pm
Denominational affiliation is becoming less and less a factor in church participation. Still, however, it is critical to be informed about the basic principals of The Episcopal Church, because they are the structure and framework of our church life. Eric Law and Stephanie Spellers wrote The Episcopal Way as Volume 1 of the Church’s Teachings for a Changing World. Law and Spellers’ work brings a fresh and new perspective to the meaning of Episcopalian.  Their book, which is available at Epiphany for $10 or on Amazon, will be the conversation starter for Sunday sessions in the Willard Room.
