Grace: It's Our Way of Life

As Episcopal Christians we
Worship at home daily and together weekly;
Study the Scriptures, our tradition, and what it means to be a disciple today;
Serve our families, our parish, and our world in the name of Christ.

Everything we do is done with an ethic of Welcome
because we are only here by Grace.

Advent Prayer Guide: Week Four

Advent Prayer Guide Week Four

Here is the new daily prayer guide with a short poem of mine on waiting as an act of faith. There is a mania to being defined by waiting that makes for both holiness and madness. To be defined by absence alone would be devastating, but we are also indwelt by the Spirit, so our waiting is a waiting for realization of reality. It is both/and. And that is not maddening but creative, or at least it has the potential to be creative, if only we act and don't merely sit in our folding chairs waiting on the Rapture like a promised tornado.
