It’s been one year now since I set foot inside the Episcopal Church, and it’s been an amazing year with faith that was once almost dead blossoming back to new life. I’m going to be confirmed soon which means that I’ll be a true blue Episcopalian. If I had a word to describe this year it would probably be reconciliation.
I’m currently working on a book titled “Becoming Episcopalian”. These are my favorite ten posts about becoming Episcopalian this past year.
Beautiful Liturgy – This was the beginning of the journey as far as church is concerned.
Witchcraft to Liturgy – Sometimes our colossal screw-ups lead us to the right path eventually.
Grace in the Sacraments – How consuming Jesus began bringing me back to God.
Cheap Imitations – This was written right after my son came out of the ICU.
Returning to the Lord – My first experience with the sacrament of reconciliation.
Feasting on Jesus – The Holy Communion has changed my life.
The Ugly Crucifix – The crucifixion wasn’t pretty, it was downright ugly but it can turn into something pretty.
Sacrament of Reconciliation – The cool thing is, this man I offended is sponsoring my confirmation for me.
Forgiveness – “And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us…”
This is my blood, shed for you – “There is a fountain filled with blood, drawn from Immanuel’s veins, and sinners plunged beneath that flood lose all their guilty stains”.
