450. After Five Years, I've Decided

This morning, at the 10:30 am service of the Episcopal Church of the Advent, just prior to the service beginning, I approached Mary, who has some official pastoral role, and told her that when the "Inquirers Class" begins during Lent, I wanted to be a part of it. This will be the first real step toward separation from Holy Mother the Church, which is to say the Roman Catholic Church, and communion with other Episcopalians in the Anglican Communion.

There is a line in an old hymn, "Burdens are lifted at Calvary." This one was lifted at Baxter and Broadway.

Jeff! I was hoping you'd come give Highland Baptist a try first. :--)

In any event -- good luck in your continuing faith journey. Glad you've found a faith family that fits where you're at right now.

Graduate of Prestonia Elementary, Durrett High, and Spalding University; the first two now-closed Jefferson County Public Schools, the latter a very small liberal arts college in downtown Louisville affiliated with the Roman Catholic Sisters of Charity of Nazareth.
