Name Change for the Church!
St. Francis Episcopal Church in Austin, a parish of the EMC, voted yesterday to change the name to St. Francis Anglican Church. I, for one, am relieved. Most of the people I know actually believe that the official name of the church I attend is "St. Francis Episcopal-But-We're-Not-Them Church." Of course, that would never fit on the sign.
Some people seem to be awfully attached to the name "Episcopal;" I can't help but think it's like being attached to the name "Enron."
I'm sure it will be a while before we get the stationery, sign, and website changed; gotta get the legalities dealt with first.
