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.

Sermon in which the Very Rev. Daniel P. Richards calls us to "plug into" God, the source of our power to heal and be healed. The instructions are simple, so we should not let our pride get in the way: Submit to God, submit to a community of faith, and submit to the good. In this way we become connected and can become the sons and daughters of God, stewards of the earth, our families, parish, and world that God desires.
