Living as an Episcopalian




What is Episcopalian Christianity? How are we distinctive from other branches of Christianity? On Wednesday evenings during Lent of 2001 we explored our history, worship and faith as Episcopalians in this five part series.

Note this series was updated in 2015 with PowerPoint presentations under the title Christianity in Episcopal Tints.
