Introduction to the Episcopal Church as a Member of the Anglican Communion

  • 1. Session Two: Truth, Justice, and the “Anglican” Way What do we stand for? How do we know? Session Two: Truth, Justice, and the "Anglican" Way 1
  • 2. Does the Episcopal Church have a “voice?” The Church of England (Anglican) was established at the crossroads of Catholic and Protestant paths:  They rejected the authority of Rome (the Pope) to dictate doctrine.  They continued to embrace Catholic liturgy—but in English.  They believed that people should use their intelligence and experience to help discern the mind of Christ, alongside Scripture and Tradition. Session Two: Truth, Justice, and the "Anglican" Way 2
  • 3. The “Anglican Way”— Holding together diversity in unity. Anglican theologians and leaders have always emphasized: Reconciling the World to God. Jesus as the “incarnation” of God. Redemption offered freely to all. Peace and Justice as our principal mission. Session Two: Truth, Justice, and the "Anglican" Way 3
