HWS Contributes to Book 101 Reasons to be an Episcopalian

This small volume 101 Reasons to be an Episcopalian, edited by Louie Crew and published by Morehouse press, includes the Rt. Rev. Jack McKelvey, Episcopal Bishop of Rochester and HWS trustee, commenting, “We celebrate a Christmas Season, not just a Christmas Day.” Professor Catherine Gallouet notes, “Catholic without the pope and with the women; protestant without the gloom.” And Chaplain Lesley Adams submits, “Where else can you be considered a young person until you are 40?”

Former Chaplain Ellen K. Wondra, now professor of theology at Bexley Hall in Rochester, N.Y., took the assignment a bit more seriously and wrote, “Episcopalians may spend a lot of time arguing with each other about important matters inside and outside the church. And often the arguments are very public. Sometimes they go on for years and seem to reach no definite resolution. But Episcopalians are confident that in and through this kind of engagement with each other, they will come closer to understanding what God is up to and who God wants them, as a church, to be.”
