LITURGICAL MYSTERIES--NOT WHAT YOU THINK!

Who doesn’t love a good mystery, and even better if the mystery involves the Episcopal church.  Mark Schweizer’s “liturgical mystery” series features a part-time Episcopal choir master who is also full-time police detective and burgeoning mystery writer.  From The Baritone Wore Chiffon to The Cantor Wore Crinolines, you will be entertained and amused.  The Parish Book Store aims to please, so come by and see what else we have.

THE JESUS MOVEMENT EXPLAINED

Jesus did not come to establish an institution, but a movement, according to Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. That movement, the Jesus Movement, is explained in Following the Way of Jesus which includes a chapter on evangelism by Megan Castellan, former associate rector at ESC.  The book from the series Church’s Teachings for a Changing World offers small groups, vestries, and individuals reflections on the practice of ministry for the movement. The Parish Book Store has additional titles in the series.  Come in and peruse our shelves!
