This Episcopalian Life (in Connecticut)
It reminds me a lot of the podcast giant TAL but it hits closer to home since it’s centered on the small, vibrant, and loving community of my Episco-Pals in CT whom I love so much. Thanks for doing the work you’re doing and for providing us all with such a delightful listen!
Great resource for ECCT
It is so great to hear what God is up to in Connecticut!
