Dear Reverend Wagner:
Let me first wish you a very Happy New Year. You do not know me, but I met you Christmas Eve at your beautiful church in Jim Thorpe. I was visiting my girlfriend’s grandmother and attended worship service with her family in the evening; a unique feat for me. I am not Episcopal; I am not Roman Catholic; I am not Catholic; I am not even a Christian. I am Jewish. This was the first Episcopal worship I had ever attended with my Roman Catholic girlfriend (whose mother is Episcopal) – and I have never felt neither more welcomed nor more comfortable in a religious service.
