How Episcopalians Celebrate Mardi Gras #episcopal #mardigras

Tonight at church we celebrated Mardi Gras 2018 early with a party featuring great fellowship, food and fun. We had jambalaya and a traditional king cake. A king and queen were crowned too and they will reign until next year! Of course we parade of sorts by taking a turn around our church hall. St. Peter’s Episcopal is a fun place to be during seasons like this.

The Christmas Season Continues


In the Christian tradition the Christmas season is a period beginning on Christmas Day (December 25). In some churches (e.g. the Anglican Communion) the season continues until the day before the Epiphany, which is celebrated either on January 6 or on the Sunday between January 2 and 8… From Wikipedia

So if you keep your tree and other decorations up until the first part of January you are OK. Enjoy the season, all 12 days of it.

Black and White Photo Challenge – Day 1

I have been challenged by a couple of my fellow bloggers to do a black and white photo challenge. Today I am accepting that challenge and I hope to do good here. Thank you for giving me this opportunity my friends. Anyone who wishes to do this I challenge you.


I am a Licensed Lay Eucharistic Minister at my church, this means I can serve communion at any Episcopal Church in the Diocese of East Tennessee. This is a Credence Table where elements of Communion stand ready for worship. This is a important part of my service at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church.
