on the first Monday evening of each month!
and your friends in the Epiphany Community!
This October, at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church in Houston, TX, we invite you to explore “The Risk of Grace” with us, how the Gospel fearlessly addresses and liberates the control freak in us all.
To those struggling under the burden of self-reliance—exhausted by the rat race of comparison and performance—the Gospel is more than good news, it is the best news, a doorway to both freedom and peace.
The cost of the conference is $60.

Depending on how many people go, we will take a church van or carpool down on Thursday evening to save on gas.
Robert Finney is looking into cheap economical housing for college students.

Mme. Gilot: ‘What crime did you commit?’
Valjean: ‘Maybe I killed someone… How do you know I’m not going to murder *you*?’
Bishop: How do you know *I’m* not going to murder *you*?
Jean Valjean: What’s that, a joke?
Bishop: I suppose we’ll have to trust each other.
The Epiphany College Community hosts Dinner / Discussions for college students at my house (806, South Donnybrook) every Thursday night from 6-8 PM. This fall, instead of video teaching clips, we will be watching short segments of films, beginning with the 1998 version of Les Miserables (the one with Liam Neeson), and talking about them. If you are a college student, we would love to have you join us (and bring a friend). Questions? Facebook message me, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or text me at 903-279-2509.
PS: FREE DINNER! (you caught that, right?)

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.”
