At the Episcopal Church

Today we went to St. Matthew's Episcopal Church for the final Journey to Easter service. It is in a beautiful setting overlooking Sand Springs Lake. Off in the distance one can see the tall buildings of downtown Tulsa.

The service today was entirely scripted. The vicar asked for and received volunteers to read from a booklet distributed as participants entered the building.

After the service ended, we all went to the fellowship hall for a meal.

And now for a quote from Chapter 2 of Saving Jesus From the Church by Robin Meyers.
Christianity as a belief system requires nothing but acquiescence. Christianity as a way of life, as a path to follow, requires a second birth, the conquest of ego, and new eyes with which to see the world. It is no wonder that we have preferred to be saved.
