St. Ann's Episcopal Church in Nashville--a welcoming parish celebrates 150 years
The Associated Press takes a look at St. Ann's Episcopal Church in Nashville today as the parish prepares to celebrate 150 years in the city.
St. Ann's Rector, the Rev. Rick Britton notes:
“We’re an inclusive congregation,” he said. “We support the presiding bishop where she is on this whole issue. We are a congregation that supports the ordination of the bishop of New Hampshire. And we support the blessing of same-sex unions. “However, those things have not been authorized yet. We don’t know how that’s going to play out. There’s a lot of us on both sides of the issue, who are very unsettled because we haven’t worked it out. In the meantime, we’re going to do what we can to spread the Gospel.”
Here is a link to the Facebook group for the 150th anniversary celebration.
Congratulations to St. Ann's!
