Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Touring Episcopal Churches

There are approximately 2 million Episcopalians in the United States. Just to keep us humble, I've heard it said that there are more people who say they were abducted by aliens than there are who attend an Episcopal Church. That is probably an exageration, but a useful one for humility's sake.

One way to tour Episcopal churches around the country is through their websites. There is a great listing of Episcopal church websites at Anglicans Online. Some churches to visit might by St. Philip's in the Hills in Tuscon, Arizona. The website tour of King of Peace was borrowed from the excellent tour of their buildings and grounds which St. Philip's offers on the web. Then there is the funky St. Gregory of Nyssa in San Francisco, California with a food pantry set up round its altar during the week its amazing icon project. Finally, the must see might be the truly awe inspiring National Cathedral, which is an Episcopal Church.

When looking for an Episcopal church to attend while visiting another town, try Parish Finder which will show you what's close, together with software to give you a map and directions.
