What does it mean to be Episcopalian…. in this day and age? On 2nd and 4th Sundays (the first session was April 22, 2018) we have an inquirers class led by the Vicar on the basics of the Christian faith and Episcopal identity, practice and tradition. We will use the book, THE EPISCOPAL WAY by Stephanie Spellers and Eric Law as a companion for our discussions on the distinctiveness of our Episcopal faith and the community of St. Martin’s. We will also be (re-) introduced to the Book of Common Prayer. All are welcome to participate whether you are new to the faith, or have been a member of St. Martin’s for years. Please let Fr. Chris Griffin or Lisa Scott know if you are interested.
