A Popular History of the Episcopal Church

Sundays | August 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 | 10:30 am |Via Zoom

The Reverend Dr. Peter Strimer

The Episcopal Church has always had an out-sized influence on American politics and culture. While never making up more than 4% of the population (that has now dropped to 0.5%) Episcopalians have wielded political and economic power far beyond our numbers. A quarter of U.S. Presidents have been Episcopalians.

In this five-part class we will wade through a fun and fascinating look at church and culture. Looking both inside and outside the church we will explore our interesting history and explode certain myths e.g. Can you believe a nickname for our church in the 1950s was “The Republican Party at Prayer?”
