Food for thought...and action!

Episode 3 of the Way of Love is live in your podcast feeds!

In this episode, Bishop Michael Curry and hosts Kyle and Sandy discuss learning on the Way of Love: reflecting on Scripture each day, especially Jesus’ life and teachings. We hear from Jerusalem Greer, staff officer for evangelism at The Episcopal Church, discussing how parents can share their faith with adult children. Later, Kyle and Sandy interview the Rev.

Saint Michael and All Angels

Monday, September 30 is the Feast Day of St. Michael and All Angels. Traditionally a "quarter day" in the liturgical year, this day honors the triumph of St. Michael and All Angels over Satan's power. In Britain, as "Michaelmas," this day has traditionally marked the passing of summer into autumn, calling on the power of light to conquer the darkness of the coming winter. May St. Michael and the angels of light bring their power to bear in our hearts and in our world.

The Episcopal Church

Bishop Michael Curry’s podcast - the Way of Love - returns for a second season. Hear this powerful preacher and consider how we can walk together in the Way of Love.

Have you listened to the new podcast episode? Bishop Curry talks with Bishop Vashti McKenzie of the African Methodist Episcopal Church about following the Way of Love beyond the church walls. Listen today!

"Whoever is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much; and whoever is dishonest in a very little is dishonest also in much. If then you have not been faithful with the dishonest wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches? And if you have not been faithful with what belongs to another, who will give you what is your own? No slave can serve two masters; for a slave will either hate the one and love the other, or be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth." Luke 16:1-13; from the readings for Sunday, September 22.

Step through our red door (or, really, any of our doors) and find a place where all are welcome.

TryTank Explainer Video Series: The Episcopal Church Explaining what is the Episcopal Church in a fun and informative way.

We pray this beautiful and solemn morning.

O God, the creator of heaven and earth, our refuge and our strength. As we recall this day the tragic terrorist attacks of 2001, we remember all who lost their lives at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and in a field near Shanksville, Pa., and commit their souls to your eternal care.

We give thanks for the courage of countless first responders and Good Samaritans who put their lives as risk for the sake of others.

Be a source of strength and healing to survivors who are living with physical or emotional pain and the effects of trauma. Comfort all who mourn, and guide our hearts toward compassion and hope.

We pray also that those whose hearts are filled with hate may be turned toward love. Help us recognize that we are all created in your image, break down the walls that divide us and strengthen our wills that we all may be instruments of your peace.

In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.
