“Come and see.”
Jesus found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.” That was all Philip needed. He ran to tell Nathanael that he had found the Messiah. Nathanael had heard about this Nazorean and questioned whether anything good ever came out of Nazareth. All Philip could say to him was “Come and see.” Nathanael did and once he had met Jesus, he was hooked, too.
We all have questions about how to respond to the spiritual yearning that exists within us. There are any number of people who will tell you how to do that, but, like Nathanael and Philip, you have to see for yourself.
The Episcopal Church in Garrett County invites you to “Come and See.” We don’t claim to have answers for you but our church community is one that welcomes seekers warmly. We can tell you what we have found, but that’s all. You’ll have to come and see for yourself. We hope you will.
Christianity is getting a lot of publicity these days; probably more than it should.
We welcome your questions. We all have something to learn from one another. That’s what true community is about. You’ll find a warm and welcoming community in the Episcopal Church in Garrett County.
The Rev. Dr. Chip Lee
