I go to Church a lot. I'm an Episcopalian (formerly a catholicish Methodist, turned MCCer) . I'm also an aspiring Priest and Anthropologist( of the socio-cultural variety). Also, I'm a gay with a wonderful Boyfriend. This blog will likely be a combination of churchy things, anthropology, and things I find amusing. Please forgive my grammar and style, because most of my writing on here is stream of consciousness. I don't argue.
This icon of St. Francis of Assisi was hanging on the wall of the St. Francis chapel at Emmanuel Episcopal. It was a lovely little chapel. There were white tree cut-outs all around the room set out against kelly green painted walls. There was a simple circular stained glass window on one of the walls. In the front of the chapel was a simple wood crucifix, and a white communion table.
Aesthetics aside, it was a very nice service. My parents tagged along and the three of us almost doubled the size of the group that I gather normally meets there. Fr. Chuck Taylor (formally: the Rt. Rev. Charles Taylor) preached a good down to earth sermon making the case for the celebration of the feast of the holy innocents as a remembrance of those children who have suffered from child abuse, infanticide and so forth.
