|A year ago our hearts turned to Chattanooga, Tennessee. Now we can hardly list the places of terror. Please pray with us for all who mourn, and more especially for Baton Rouge, Nice, and Dallas. Pray also for all who serve and protect and their families.
Bishop William Millsaps
Now we must add Munich to the growing list.
Welcome to the EMC
2016 A.D... a time when people have one thing in common, they are seeking that which only the church can offer. Something they can’t find at a friend’s house, in a bar or even at a police station.
They are seeking the hiding place of David found in Psalm 32:7 which says,
You are my hiding place;
You shall preserve me from trouble;
You shall surround me with songs of deliverance.
Historically, the red doors of a church have always been a symbol of sanctuary promising refuge to those in peril. The color red evokes the blood of Jesus Christ, which protects the soul of the wayfaring from spiritual harm. The red doors symbolize the blood of Christ, which is our entry into salvation. They also remind us of the blood of the martyrs, the seed of the church. The red cross on the Episcopal Missionary Church logo symbolizes the same.
Jesus Christ is our refuge. The Episcopal Missionary Church is a body of Anglican Churches where the doors of each parish community is a refuge for all those who enter through them. Each sanctuary is a holy place, there are no outcasts. Our door is open to all!
