We are committed Christians worshiping in the Episcopal tradition and working in more than 100 faith communities throughout western, central & southern Maryland. We are a community of love, encountering Christ and engaging the world.
The politically motivated darkness perpetrated on our country on the Feast of the Epiphany, no less, must never be confused with anything to do with the ministry and commission of Jesus Christ to all the baptized.
Emotions remain high, and the potential for more unrest, polarization and violence has sadly come true today in our nation’s Capital. And it is heart-wrenching. A woman has died and other lives have been threatened. We must pray for our nation and all its people. Pray for our congressional leaders, pray for the safety of our law enforcement personnel, pray for the protesters.
Several months into the pandemic, we began to realize that, like during Holy Week and Easter, we wouldn't be able to meet in our churches for Christmas. Yet our congregations stepped up and kept the creative energy flowing, despite the fatigue brought on by such a challenging year. We are a community of love. We worshipped together and made offerings of what we had to give.
