101 REASONS TO BE EPISCOPALIAN
I’m comforted by the fact that I am part of a church that allows for differing viewpoints and open debate. While many label our church as “wish-washy” or divided on the issues, I think that my faith is stronger for my being an active participant in trying to understand God’s will. When I hear or read the spirited pinions of my fellow Episcopalians, I find that I am grateful to them, whether I agree with their viewpoints or not. They are contributing to the vitality of our church, and keeping us all honest.
