Need to talk to a pastor? To get something off your chest?
Maybe you just need some spiritual direction or a friend.
Page 317 of the The Book of Common Prayer says (ala James 5:16) that “if … you need help and counsel [in your preparation for Holy Communion], go and open your grief to a discreet and understanding priest, and confess your sins, that you may receive the benefit of absolution, and spiritual counsel and advice….”
For Anglicans, “All may, none must, some should.”
Fr. Matt’s confidential pastoral office hours are every Friday, from 12:30 to 1:30PM.
(Frs. Keith and David are also available by appointment)
To make an appointment, email Fr. Matt here: email@example.com.

‘Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got. Taking a break from all your worries sure would help a lot. Wouldn’t you like to get away? Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name and they’re always glad you came!’
Is it cheesey that I just quoted the opening line from the theme song of the classic 80’s sitcom, Cheers? Perhaps it is. On the other hand, there was a reason that show and song lasted 11 seasons and it is still relevant today. As men, we long for connection, brotherhood, and trust and to process our thoughts with other men that know us.
Starting June 4th, Summer men’s depth group will begin at 5:30 every Thursday at Brady’s Specialty Coffee. We will spend about an hour going through a passage from Romans while enjoying some coffee. Around 6:30, we will head over to Father Matt’s porch or somewhere else to enjoy some cold beverages and to talk about all the things we didn’t get to during the Bible study.
The Bible, Coffee, Beer, and good friends: does it get any better than this? I don’t think so. See you there!
and your friends in the Epiphany Community!
‘My hope is to gain a fresh hearing for Jesus, especially among those who believe they already understand him. In his case, quite frankly, presumed familiarity has led to unfamiliarity, unfamiliarity has led to contempt, and contempt has led to profound ignorance.’
-Dallas Willard, The Divine Conspiracy
The Epiphany College Community hosts Dinner / Discussions for college students at my house (806, South Donnybrook) every Thursday night from 6-8 PM. After eating, we will look at what it means to be an apprentice of Jesus, through the lens of Dallas Willard’s The Divine Conspiracy. If you are a college student or college-aged, we would love to have you join us (and bring a friend). Questions? You can Facebook message me, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or text me at 903-279-2509.
PS: FREE DINNER! (you caught that, right?)
