Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

Something About Mary

In the Season of Advent, we, like Mary, await the coming of Jesus.

Our liturgy is intentionally pregnant with possibility: quiet, contemplative, introspective, expecting joy. Our Vestments are blue, in honor of ‘Holy Mary, Mother of God.”

Who is Mary of Bethlehem? What does it mean to be ‘theotokos’, a God-bearer? Why is Mary sometimes called a ‘co-Redemptrix and why is that a controversial statement? What do Episcopalians who are members of the World-Wide Anglican Communion believe about Mary? Of all the beautiful prayers in our Book of Common Prayer, why are there none specifically to Mary?
