ADULT BIBLE STUDY:

I don’t have to go through all these steps to be with God. It’s good to find a church that is simple. A complicated church has a million different rules, one that requires a lot of you to perfect it, and to be a good follower of God. Church shouldn’t feel like a task, or an obligation or pressure. You should be going because you want to worship God in your own personal way with other people. My church is simple and open.
I even feel it in the design of the wooden pews. They are well worn, but polished. There is something about it that is used and old, but well maintained. It’s like it’s been touched by so many people that it takes on oil from people over time... You can tell people have held onto them over time, and the wood has been smoothed by age. I think it’s a good image in my mind of this church. It’s been shaped by people over time, and yet it’s timeless and substantial.
The Episcopal Church is striking, particularly because of the rituals that we participate in. The prayers we are saying are spoken through time by Anglicans around the world. It’s like a time warp, and you come as an individual, but become part of a collective force of people, all speaking the same words as part of the same ritual. It’s a comforting feeling to know that others are experiencing the same thing at that moment, and that you are grateful for Jesus coming. It makes you feel that you are becoming part of the ritual.

Join us this Sunday @ 10am!
