In this episode… we unpack the question, do Episcopalians actually read Scripture? We are joined by the Very Reverend Dr. Andy Keyse for this conversation. We talk about how Episcopalians view Holy Scripture and if there’s a way to faithfully study and understand them. We also discuss the importance of translations of the Bible and where to start reading the Bible if you are wanting to explore it for the first time.

The Rev. David Kendrick — St John’s Episcopal Church, Springfield, the Rev. Collin Larimore — Grace Episcopal Church, Carthage, and Clare Stern-Burbano — Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral, Kansas City hosts sessions that include conversations, interviews, and even an occasional sermon.
We want to introduce the Episcopal Church from multiple perspectives and with different voices, utilizing social media to find out what questions students may have about who we are and what we do. Guest speakers, including college students from around our diocese, are already being scheduled for future sessions.
We do not currently have a physical presence on college campuses in our diocese, but we think podcasting offers a great opportunity to meet young adults where they are and share our faith in a way that is personal, comfortable, and always accessible. We hope that these sessions will be a bridge to connect college students with local parishes and with other young adults.
