Robin Williams on Being an Episcopalian… Posted on August 12, 2014 by Art Hancock
Robin Williams, a long-time Episcopalian, gave us the following Top 10 List of Reasons for Being an Episcopalian. I have this same list on a favorite t-shirt! Of course, the list makes us laugh (which is a sacred thing in and of itself), but it also presents us with encouraging truths about our particular way of following Christ. Thank you, once again, Robin for your wit and insight. And thanks to William Barnett-Lewis for reminding me of the list. ~Father Art
