One of our promises in the Baptismal covenant is to “Proclaim by word and deed the good news of God in Christ.” This is a call to joining our words and our actions together; it is a call to naming what is “good news in Christ” in all that we do. We often stumble with how to talk about matters of faith that are deeply important to us.
This evening will be a time to hear from some in the Episcopal Church in Connecticut who are seeking to blend their words and their deeds in authentic ways. We will hear what they are doing and how they are providing a way for folks to talk about their deeds from a faithful, prayerful perspective. We will catch a glimpse of the deep connection between being formed as Christians and talking about our faith.
