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.


Common Worship

Saint Boniface Episcopal ChurchThis morning, I worshipped at Saint Boniface Episcopal Church on Siesta Key in Sarasota, Florida. While I always enjoy being at King of Peace, it was also a joy to worship with another community of faith and to enjoy their own unique rhythms and gifts. Their buildings and grounds were thoughtfully designed with a beautiful, and wonderfully consistent artistic sensibility. The church boasts an admirable array of programs and outreach, which includes a preschool with the best church playground ever (it had climbing trees within the playground).

The worship service was quite enjoyable. And during it, I felt deeply that that same Spirit I feel at King of Peace was here on Siesta Key as well. I know from talking with Mark Templman, who served at King of Peace today as celebrant and preacher that he much enjoyed worshipping at our church.

It's just an amazing gift to see that the worship we do separately from other churches really does hold its essence in common. After talking for a few days in meetings about how we Christians are one for we worship our one Lord, it was great to have that affirmed on Sunday morning in communion.

    I just went to the Baptist church in our community and with 3 other churches involved it sure is an inspiration to see that God is worshiped and praised if very similar fashion. We all came together in the family of God. Have a great Easter and God bless. In Christian love John
