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 Rev Katheryn M King proclaims the gospel of John’s account of the disciples hiding in fear and Jesus appears. Jesus comes to break the locks of our lives, to eliminate fear, and thereby we are moved to serve. Our story is totally Christ’s story of forgiveness to the world. There are no more locked doors or cells or other self-made prisons that will keep us from Jesus.

Acts 4:32-35
Psalm 133
1 John 1:1-2:2
John 20:19-31

The Collect

Almighty and everlasting God, who in the Paschal mystery established the new covenant of reconciliation: Grant that all who have been reborn into the fellowship of Christ's Body may show forth in their lives what they profess by their faith; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
