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.

The Very Rev.Daniel P Richards asks the probing questions, "What is your theology?" which means "What is your view of God?" Your view of God shapes the way you live and act ... your ethos.  God is a God of generosity in all things. There is always enough and always enough so that you can also give it away. You are a child of God with riches and blessing poured out on you enough so that you can also give it away to a needy world.

The parish is celebrating World Gratitude Day.

The Collect 

Grant us, Lord, not to be anxious about earthly things, but to love things heavenly; and even now, while we are placed among things that are passing away, to hold fast to those that shall endure; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
