Welcome to Epiphany!

 

Marina is a city that is at the crossroads of our county and one of the most diverse cities in the nation. The opportunity to meet so many people, from so many places adds adventure and fun to our community. As one of your neighbors, we would like to take a moment to introduce our special community within Marina - Epiphany Lutheran & Episcopal Church.

We are a true blend. Diversity for us is more then a culture or ethnicity. It is the way of our faith life. With both the Lutheran (ELCA) and Episcopal Churches coming together under one roof, we truly express diversity in our walk of faith.

We do not always see the world through the same eyes of experience, so we search and celebrate the faith touchstones that can bring us to a commonplace of experience. Our Sunday Worship and experience is a blend of historical traditions, worldwide community, contemporary music, as well as prayer and fellowship of other sojourners; all with a focus on the integrity of our blended community.

What will you see at Epiphany? Our average Sunday worship is about 45 people, in a small chapel (Church membership is over 120 and growing. But, not everyone comes every Sunday). However, the chapel is still large enough, that if you want to be quietly unnoticed and check things out, you can. Music that is contemporary (not Praise), with a choir that will amaze you. We do not seek perfection in the worship, we celebrate our gifts. Some people dress casual and some in their Sunday best. You will see a community dedicated to community service and making our world a better place. We strive for excellent preaching every Sunday (We realize that even the preacher can not reach perfection every Sunday). However everyone will welcome you, and we can promise that you can be you; the whole you!

    A Guide to Spiritual Practice

    by Renee Miller (Author)

    This collection of thoughtful reflections looks at events and activities of everyday life and discovers routes to spiritual practice and deeper, daily spirituality. At the behest of CREDO Institute, Inc., which hosts health and wellness conferences and is supported by the Episcopal Church Pension Fund, priest and CREDO conference leader Renée Miller wrote the 20 reflections and grouped them into the categories "Meditative Practice," "Ministry Practice," "Media Practice," "Mind Practice," and "Movement Practice." Each entry, accented with color photographs, is aimed at evoking mindfulness in the common activities of life, from music and moviegoing to reading, writing, and walking.

    For the reader who wishes to use the book to introduce or more deeply explore spiritual practices with other people or in an instructional setting, each chapter concludes with a nod toward who might be inclined to certain practices, based on individual predilections or personality.

    Renee Miller is a writer, poet, priest, entrepreneur, long-distance truck driver in training, and CREDO conference leader. From 1988 to 1997, she served as Director of the Diocesan School for Faith Ministry and as Canon to the Ordinary in the Diocese of Idaho. From 1997 to 2001 she served as Canon to the Ordinary in the Diocese of El Camino Real.
