Love Kindness: The Spiritual Practice of Episcopal Evangelism

with guest speaker Jerusalem Greer

Every baptized Episcopalian has vowed to proclaim by word and example the GoodNews of God in Christ. We call this the spiritual practice of evangelism. A practice in which we are invited to seek, name and celebrate Jesus’ loving presence in the stories of all people—then invite everyone to MORE. But how should we as individuals and faith communities live out this commitment? And what does evangelism look like in an Episcopal context?

Through a combination of plenary talks and breakout sessions, Jerusalem Greer, Consulting Evangelist for the Office of the Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church, will help us dismantle and then reclaim the spiritual practice of evangelism within our tradition.

Over the course of the day we will explore what it means to:

  • Name and celebrate stories of the presence of God in Christ everywhere.
  • Allow ourselves and our churches to be transformed by new relationships.
  • Invite others to discover their own belovedness in Christ.
  • Be Good News.
  • Began an intentional and authentic ministry of evangelism within our context and neighborhoods.

Jerusalem Greer works as a Consulting Evangelist for the Office of The Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church, and is a member of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s Way of Love creation and leadership team. Locally she serves part-time as the Minister of Formation and Connection at St. Peter’s Episcopal in Conway, Ark. Additionally, Jerusalem is the Project Evangelist for Baptized for Life: An Episcopal Discipleship Initiative from Virginia Theological Seminary, and the coordinator for Forma’s Faith-at-Home resources. She lives with her family in Greenbrier and is the author of At Home in this Life: Finding Peace at the Crossroads of Unraveled Dreams and Beautiful Surprises and A Homemade Year: The Blessings of Cooking, Crafting and Coming Together. As a family they are attempting to live a slower version of the modern life. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t She writes about all of this and more at jerusalemgreer.com.
