Garrison Keillor on Episcopalians …
We make fun of Episcopalians for their blandness, their excessive calm, their fear of giving offense, their lack of speed and also for their secret fondness for macaroni and cheese. But nobody sings like them.
If you were to ask an audience in Des Moines, a relatively Episcopalianless place, to sing along on the chorus of “Michael Row the Boat Ashore,” they will look daggers at you as if you had asked them to strip to their underwear. But if you do this among Episcopalians, they’d smile and row that boat ashore and up on the beach! ….And down the road!
Many Episcopalians are bred from childhood to sing in four-part harmony, a talent that comes from sitting on the lap of someone singing alto or tenor or bass and hearing the harmonic intervals by putting your little head
against that person’s rib cage. It’s natural for Episcopalians to sing in harmony. We are too modest to be soloists, too worldly to sing in unison.
When you’re singing in the key of C and you slide into the A7th and D7th
chords, all two hundred of you, it’s an emotionally fulfilling moment. By
our joining in harmony, we somehow promise that we will not forsake each
I do believe this, people: Episcopalians, who love to sing in four-part
harmony are the sort of people you could call up when you’re in deep
distress. If you are dying, they will comfort you. If you are lonely,
they’ll talk to you. And if you are hungry, they’ll give you tuna salad!
Episcopalians believe in prayer, but would practically die if asked to pray
out loud. Episcopalians like to sing, except when confronted with a new hymn
or a hymn with more than four stanzas.
Episcopalians believe their Rectors will visit them in the hospital, even if
they don’t notify them that they are there. Episcopalians usually follow the
official liturgy and will feel it is their way of suffering for their sins.
Episcopalians believe in miracles and even expect miracles, especially
during their stewardship visitation programs or when passing the plate.
Episcopalians feel that applauding for their children’s choirs will not make
the kids too proud and conceited.
Episcopalians think that the Bible forbids them from crossing the aisle
while passing the peace.
Episcopalians drink coffee as if it were the Third Sacrament.
Episcopalians feel guilty for not staying to clean up after their own
wedding reception in the Fellowship Hall.
Episcopalians are willing to pay up to one dollar for a meal at church.
Episcopalians still serve Jell-O in the proper liturgical color of the
season and Episcopalians believe that it is OK to poke fun at themselves and
never take themselves too seriously.
And finally, you know you are a Episcopalian when:
-It’s 100 degrees, with 90% humidity, and you still have coffee after the
-You hear something really funny during the sermon and smile as loudly as
-Donuts are a line item in the church budget, just like coffee.
- When you watch a Star Wars movie and they say, “May the Force be with
you,” and you respond, “and also with you.”
- And lastly, it takes ten minutes to say good-bye . . . .

Dear Lord, help me remember what a difference it makes when I make time with You a priority in my morning. Awaken me in body and spirit each day with a desire to meet with You and to hear You speak words of affirmation, assurance, and wisdom over my heart as I prepare to go into my day. In Jesus' Name, Amen. - Traci Miles

From the National President: A Statement About Racism
“It is urgent for Christian leaders to speak into this racially charged moment of our nation's history. Silence in this matter can be interpreted as complicity with a demonically empowered status quo that prefers one kind of human over another. Please do not opt out. Call us all not only to repentance and faith but also service. Challenge us to ask the Holy Spirit to empower us for mission. May God help our churches become beacons of healing, serving our deeply divided communities in the Name of Jesus Christ.”
Bishop Gregory O. Brewer
We are living in sad times. An underwhelming sadness clouds my days. It seems like déjà vu — one more time. I have lived through the segregation in the 1950’s, sit-ins in the1960’s, integration, marches and Black Power in the 1970’s, and the glass ceiling of corporate America in the 2000’s. As a nation of peoples, we have now come to a time when men and women of color are in danger for simply living. Say his name! George Floyd! Running while black! Sleeping while black! It is easy to slip into hopelessness and anger while our nation wrestles with the sin of racism. I could choose to live in fear, but I choose differently. I choose to turn again and find joy in my God.
I have tried for days to find words of wisdom to speak to the Daughters. Presiding Bishop Curry says we only need to follow the footsteps of Jesus. In this time of pandemic and the unveiling of systemic racism throughout the world, we must first take heed to the teachings of Jesus and live more closely as followers of the example that He set for us. Invite the Holy Spirit to be more present in your life. As Daughters we have each taken a vow to pray, serve and evangelize. Rededicating ourselves to this work can be our first step in this journey.
1. Pray. Pray without ceasing. It is our calling. Our country and world need it now more than ever. Pray for the end of racism and for an end to the pandemic of Covid-19. Pray for and love your neighbor who doesn’t look like you, think like you, love like you, speak like you, pray like you or vote like you. No exceptions!
2. Serve. Even in the Covid-19 crisis, Daughters are finding countless ways to serve. One special way is the sewing of face masks, which are many times being given to hospitals for nonessential personnel as well as to friends, families and church members. If you are able, food pantries need volunteers. If you aren’t able to volunteer in person your donations of food or money are welcomed. Check on your neighbors and offer to run errands for those who need it. Send cards to shut-ins, share your home cooked meals with those who are now unemployed. Prayer shawls and blankets continue to be knitted.
3. Evangelize. Tell your story. How has Jesus changed your life? Everywhere you go be like Christ in your words and deeds. Find a way to be an agent of change in your community and eradicate racism. As your church reopens, invite and encourage friends, family and strangers to visit. Pray for someone you know who does not believe.
Our Chaplain’s entreaty at the opening of this statement urges us as Daughters to be bold in speaking out against the systemic racism in our country, which is evidenced too clearly by the senseless killings of black men and women. Protesters of all races and ethnicities are in the streets demanding change. This country has an opportunity in this time of crisis for real change. God is calling out to us and giving us an opportunity to right the wrongs of our history and in our present-day society. We must find new ways to live as we promised at Baptism - striving for justice and peace among all people and respecting the dignity of every human being. We cannot say we love God and hate one another.
The Order of The Daughters of the King is a diverse community of women throughout the world. We are of numerous colors: white, black, Asian, Native American, and Latina. We must stand against and call out racism in every form. We bow our heads in shame for our nation who has systematically caused some communities of people to suffer emotional distress, illness, imprisonment, lack of opportunity and vulnerability at every turn. We ask forgiveness from God for ourselves and our churches who have sinned.
“O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”

Crises generate so much adrenaline - that fight or flight reaction. The last three months have been a series of crises: the pandemic has left many people dealing with grief, sorrow and anxiety. And while for some lockdown has been a welcome chance to be at home with loved ones, for others it has been a time of growing loneliness and isolation.
Recently we've had the crisis over the terrible killing of George Floyd in the United States. The worldwide reaction to that has seen a new and urgent focus on racism and injustice.
It has also pointed to the injustices in our own society, and our own structures and systems, including in the Church.
Then the economic crisis is there growling away, putting many people out of jobs and threatening their futures. For hundreds of millions of people in poorer countries, it is threatening even their ability to find food.
So crises give us energy, whether for fight or flight. But the consequences of crises often mean there is work to be done, and we might struggle with a sense of despair. We might ask, “How are we going to change things? When is this going to end?”
This is the moment when our true values and ethics come to the surface. It’s when we show whether we will, as Jesus tells us, love our neighbour - and who we consider our neighbour to be.
In the 25th chapter of Matthew's gospel, Jesus calls us to care for those in need. So this is the moment where we must care for young people and children, and for all those who are ill and need long-term treatment. We must find the strength for that.
We must care for the poor around the world and show that we recognise their humanity. We must care for the gift of this planet and all that it means to us.
There are so many needs, and we can feel overwhelmed and fatigued if we put our hope in things that fail us. If we put our trust in the idols of this world, we will buckle under the strain. We’ll confine ourselves to doing only what we can for ourselves.
But there is another way.
We can we open our lives to God. We can we do as Jesus says in that teaching in Matthew 25.
We can be those who live rightly in seeking his strength - being empowered by him, knowing his love, his hope, his future - and find we are truly welcome into his Kingdom, into his joy and light.
May God bless you and open all our hearts more deeply to his love.
