Letting God’s journey unfold
Even though it’s been a while now since our wonderful trip to England, the memory of that precious time with Mary and Angela in the land that gave birth to the Anglican Church is fresh in my mind’s eye. Scenes pass at random through memory like pages in a journal, blowing in the summer breeze. I can see the immense lawn of the cathedral close stretching lush and green to the ancient stone walls of the towering nave at Salisbury. There too standing in silent vigil are the cairns of Stonehenge, the ruins of Tintagel Castle, and the markers of the dead in remote country churchyards. < continued >

A people born of longing
We are a people on the road, bound for a new home. Set free from nature’s instinctual constraints and experiencing the divisions wrought by our own destructive potential, we long to be healed and brought together into a new unity. Caught between earth and heaven, beast and angel, we struggle to give birth to a new humanity from the dust of old. We long for community.
Springing from the heart of God, born of Christ’s voluntary self-giving, that longed-for community grows. It includes ever-widening circles of diverse people. The church, empowered by the Holy Spirit, seeks to be loving community for the sake of the reunion of all people, the transformation of humanity and the healing of creation.
St. John’s Episcopal Church is located at 235 W. Duffy — the intersection of Asp Avenue and Duffy Street, just north of Campus Corner in Norman, Oklahoma. Map
