An Episcopalian is a member of the Episcopal Church, which is part of the world-wide Anglican Communion. The Episcopal Church was organized in America shortly after the American Revolution when it was forced to break with the Church of England on penalty of treason, because Church of England clergy were required to swear allegiance to the British monarch.
“The beauty of the Episcopal tradition is that it is open to questions and new possibilities, as well as ancient teachings. Imagine a spiritual practice that is both grounded in tradition and open to new possibilities.”
from The Episcopal Church The Rev. George Anne Boyle, Saint Thomas Episcopal Church Medina, Washington
"Will you continue in the apostles' teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers?" (The Baptismal Covenant, Book of Common Prayer)
Spiritual life is a vital concern within the CDSP community. This includes growth in personal prayer, corporate worship, and the development of a Christian style of life committed to "serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself."
