A note from our Rector; The Reverend Ceci Duke
When my husband, David, and I first visited the Episcopal Church, we met with the parish rector to find out more about the Tradition. Like many others, we were searching for a community of faith consistent with our understanding of the Gospel of Christ. At the conclusion of our meeting with the rector, he said, “I hope that soon you will find a hearth on which to settle.”
I was taken by the image of a hearth, a good likeness of an altar. The altar, as with the hearth, is a place for potential warmth, community, and relationship. We at Christ Church endeavor to be the hearth and heart of Christ – offering a place where all are welcome to discover and explore their relationship with God. At the hearth, we help one another along as we find strength to be Christ in the world. “I hope that soon you will find a hearth on which to settle.”
