On Sunday, July 10th All Saints Church gathered for a truly extraordinary day of witness — living out our continued commitment to dismantling the interlocking oppressions of systemic racism and the culture of gun violence. In our praying, marching and preaching — in our singing and in our silence — we came together in order to move forward into a better future.

I have never been prouder of All Saints Church than I was yesterday. Led by our amazing young people, over 600 members of our community gathered together in a prophetic and prayerful response to the tragic events in Baton Rouge, Minneapolis, and Dallas.

There are a lot of ways to live a life of faith and a lot of ways to be a Christian – and being an Episcopalian is one of them. From our historic foundation of “scripture, tradition and reason” to the Book of Common Prayer to where things stand in the latest season of “As The Anglican World Turns” — Susan Russell will lead an exploration about all things Episcopal Church.
