Living Our Faith in Anxious Times

During a time of national discord and worldwide upheaval, people of faith can often feel uncertain how to express their identity as children of God. St. Paul’s is an Episcopal Church, and as such we promise in the Baptismal Covenant to “strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being” (Book of Common Prayer, page 305). Our identity compels us to come together, collectively as a parish, but also as individuals, to resist social forces that threaten justice and peace in our own time. We come together in prayer, and we also live out our baptismal identity in daily acts of love, kindness, and advocacy. Check here often for resources, information, and opportunities to help you stand against racism, misogyny, xenophobia, and oppression. Together, as Episcopal Christians, we can meet the hatred around us with the love of God in Christ
