Session 3 of a 3 part series (although it is not necessary for you to have attended the prior two).
Regardless of how long one has been an Episcopalian (5 months or 50 years) or even a Christian (your whole life or you’re still not sure), it’s always helpful to review and ponder the foundational elements of Christian faith and how these are expressed in Anglican traditions and the Episcopal Church. Many churches have “inquirers’ classes” for this very purpose, to invite new or renewed engagement with our Christian faith as Episcopalians. These classes take many forms and we’ll finish the three-week series on Sunday, June 26, at 9:00am in the Parish Hall. We are reading Rowan Williams’ short little book, Being Christian: Baptism, Bible, Eucharist, Prayer. Please also read through the Baptismal Covenant in the 1979 Book of Common Prayer (p. 304-306). I would encourage you also to reflect on your own baptism—when it happened, what you thought about it at the time, what has changed since then about your own convictions concerning baptism—and also what difference a baptismal faith makes in the world. Invite your friends and neighbors!
