Our Mission statement.

I've meant to post this for ages (in the interests of Evangelism). I think it was Robin Williams who came up with it - I prefer him to Rowan!

TOP TEN REASONS TO BE EPISCOPALIAN!

10) No Snake Handling

9) You can believe in dinosaurs

8) Male and female, God created them; male and female, we ordain them

7) You don't have to check your brains at the door

6) Pew aerobics

5) Church year is color-coded

4) Free wine on Sundays

3) All of the pageantry--none of the guilt

2) You don't have to know how to swim to get baptized

And the #1 reason is...
1) No matter what you believe, there's bound to be at least one other Episcopalian who agrees with you.

All we need now is a recruiting song - what about "In the Piskies" and see if we can get the Village People to record it?

  1. Very funny, I have to take issue with Point 5 though - I'm colour blind.

  2. I suppose we could combine it with "Lent" etc in nice big letters!

  3. Have these on a red T-shirt which is my traditional Pentecost garb for church. It always gets a laugh. And yes--it is ++Robin's list! :)
