Q & A

While I ruminate on a couple of upcoming blog entries, here's your chance:

Ever wonder: What's with the incense? Why are Episcopalians always arguing (in public)? Why on earth would you Episcopalians call your leaders "primates"? Where can I get a cool hat like that one? How come are there so many drinking jokes about Episcopalians? Is Episcopal the same thing as Catholic? How many Episcopalians does it take to change a lightbulb?

Post your questions about the Episcopal Church, Episcopalians, and all things liturgical, and I'll do my best to provide or dig up (or make up) a plausible answer.


  1. Well Ok now. I like this. I really don't know beans about Episcolpalians. My impression is that it is a church steeped in ritual and tradition similar to the Catholic Church or my spouse's Greek Orthodox Church. What I am really curious about is why you have chosen the Episcolpal Church. What do you love about it? Do they have a particular set of belief's that ring true to you? What are the basic tenents of the Episcopal Church and what makes it different from other churches? Is it that you just like your particular Episcopal Church and its work, or is it the the whole Episcoplalian experience that works for you, because(and I really am not intending to be rude)with all its tradition, it justs seems kind of an odd fit considering your wonderful but rather...ahem.... irreverent sense of humor, and seemingly no nonsense type of personalty. Anyway, you make for a really interesting person. And what IS the purpose of the incense today?

  2. Yes, all that she said! Tell us about the greenhouse of your faith.

    Oh, and I'm all in about the incense AND the hat!

  3. How many Episcopalians DOES is take to change a lightbulb?
