Thought, Word and Deed: Confession and Reconciliation in the Episcopal Church
March 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until March 25, 2021
Good Shepherd, Federal Way:
Confessing our sins is a crucial part of the Christian life. It’s not about beating ourselves up. We know we aren’t perfect, and sometimes we do horrible things. And while Episcopalians typically confess our sins corporately during Sunday worship, private confession carries the additional benefit of a first-person exchange. The clergy person who hears a confession and takes counsel with you about it is bound to confidentiality for life.
Join Good Shepherd, Federal Way and learn about the history and value of the confession of sins in Christianity, both in Scripture and in the Church. Look at the two Rites of Reconciliation in The Book of Common Prayer. You may even wish to make an appointment for your own private confession in advance of Easter.
