Random and not so random musings from a 5th generation NE Missourian who became a 1st generation Episcopalian. Let the good times roll!

Recently, The Lead asked loyal Episcopalian leaders, "What's your elevator speech?"

"Elevator speech" is roughly defined as a statement that distills your organization down to statements the length of what would fit on an elevator ride.

I was a little disappointed that the comments I've seen, both initially in the article, and around the Internet were...well...longer than an elevator speech.

Here's mine about the Episcopal church:  

"I was away from organized religion for over 20 years.  I thought I'd never go back to church in a million years...but when I found the Episcopal Church I found a place that God knew I could call 'home'."

What's yours?


Growing up in the Episcopal church, I never felt that anything I could do would push me away from God, or that my gender my made me less-than. It's the message I want the world to hear.

I like it!
