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.


Vibrant Faith

We march with the congregation of La Reconciliation from their existing small church to their new church building. The church is best known in the community for helping build 22 simple houses similar to a Habitat for Humanity project.

Yesterday, our team from the Diocese of Georgia experienced an amazing welcome from the congregation of La Reconciliation in Azua, Dominican Republic. Words fail to convey the experience of the Holy Spirit as we sang and danced with fellow Episcopalians. Their vibrant faith is contagious. The church grew from 15 to more than 100 in a year and continues to grow. Their new church building is under construction and we joined them in praying there.

    Fr. Frank and Victoria,I was not aware until tonight that you had been posting from the DR, but I really enjoyed reading all of your stories and looking at all of your wonderful pictures. I wish I could have gone with you! It's very touching to see the love that you and Victoria, as well as the others, brought to the places you visited. They looked so happy having you all there. Thank you so much for taking time to share with us. I Love you both! Melodie
