Kinds of Bishops in the Episcopal Church

You may have noticed that there are different kinds of bishops in the Episcopal church and wondered what the difference is in their roles. Here is a brief tutorial on the subject.  Read more


Episcopal Church Stewardship

To Episcopalians, stewardship is about being grateful, responsible stewards of the gifts that God has given us. This attitude is drawn from the biblical practice of tithing, which means to give back, in gratitude, one tenth of our earnings to God (Numbers 18:26). But we don’t think of stewardship as just donating money. We also include the giving of our time and talents.  Read more


You Don't Have to Check Your Brain in at the Door

There is a misconception out there (which probably comes from all of the publicity that certain segments of the church get) that science and religion don’t mix. It seems that parts of the Christian church are caught up in a conflict with science that began back in the 17th century. It was in the early 1600’s that Nicholas Copernicus and Galileo Galilei published books in which they stated their theory that the Earth revolved around the sun rather than the other way around. The church disapproved of this theory because the Bible implies that the Earth is at the center of the universe and not the sun. Thus the church condemned both men as heretics and sinners. Although Copernicus died shortly after the publication of his book, Galileo was subjected to the Inquisition and spent the rest of his life under house arrest.  Read more


The Role of the Bishop

The Latin word for bishop is episcopus and thus the name of our church (the Episcopal Church) comes from that Latin root word. Our official name (The Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States) means that we are the Protestant Church with bishops in the United States. According to the catechism on p. 855 of the Book of Common Prayer, the ministry of a bishop is to represent Christ and his Church, particularly as an apostle, chief priest, and pastor of a diocese; to guard the faith, unity, and discipline of the whole Church; to proclaim the word of God; to act in Christ’s name for the reconciliation of the world and the building up of the church; and to ordain others to continue Christ’s ministry.  Read more
