Join webinars on racial reconciliation work of the Moravian and Episcopal churches.

“Past Reckoning: Exploring the Racial History of the Moravian and Episcopal Churches” is a webinar series presented by the Moravian-Episcopal Coordinating Committee Racial Reconciliation Working Group. It examines racial histories of the two churches and how new methods for racial reconciliation are working in ecumenical contexts.

All webinars will be on Wednesdays, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time (4 to 5:30 pm Pacific) using Zoom.

  • January 25: Evangelizing Enslaved People: Good News or Control?
  • February 1: The Silent Protest Parade: Responses to Racial Violence and Black Leadership in the Church
  • February 8: The Church and the City: Integration, Segregation, and White Flight

Each webinar includes a pre-recorded segment focusing on the specific historic topic. It is followed by discussion between the working group and two panelists that expands the focus and connects it to the present, and a Q&A with participants.

Shield of the Moravian Church: Our Lamb has conquered, Let us follow Him.

The Moravian Church – Northern and Southern Provinces

In 1997 the General Convention of the Episcopal Church established an official Episcopal-Moravian dialogue with the Northern Province and the Southern Province of the Moravian Church in America.

The Episcopal Church-Moravian Church dialogue met from 1999-2007. In 2003, the two churches entered into interim eucharistic sharing. In 2009, the General Convention approved “Finding Our Delight in the Lord,” a proposal for full communion between the two churches. The Moravian Church approved the proposal in 2010 at its provincial synods.

The Moravian-Episcopal Coordinating Committee carries on the work of reception of the full communion agreement and the implementation of Principles for the Orderly Exchange of Clergy.

Ecumenical and Interreligious

Ecumenical and Interreligious

The ecumenical movement is The Episcopal Church’s response to Jesus’ prayer for his disciples in John 17:21 “that they may all be one.” The Office for Ecumenical and Interreligious Relations offers prayers for unity and participates in formal dialogues to nurture a spirit of understanding and respect, while collaborating actively in mission and ministry opportunities. The Office of Ecumenical and Interreligious Relations works closely with Episcopal Diocesan Ecumenical and Interreligious Officers (EDEIO) to equip diocesan officers to carry out their work. Each province of The Episcopal Church is represented by a provincial coordinator elected from within the organization.

The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, reaching out to the world.

Church of the Redeemer

Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, and reaching out to the world around us. We are an Episcopal Church serving north King County and south Snohomish County, Washington. As you travel your road, go with friends walking the way of Jesus at Redeemer.

Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. The campus is a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside. And we managed to hide a large building on the side of a hill that is not easily seen from the street.

The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
