Senior Warden and Chancellor

Today we are talking about a couple of roles for lay people in the Episcopal church. 
In the Episcopal Church, the senior warden is usually the primary elected lay leader of the congregation, and serves as a principal liaison between the parish and the rector.  In the Episcopal Church a chancellor is a legal adviser appointed by the Presiding Bishop or a diocesan bishop. A chancellor advises the bishop and diocese on matters of secular and ecclesiastical law. A chancellor is usually an attorney at law.

Flames representing Fire at Pentecost

50 days after Easter, we find ourselves at Pentecost.  This is Jesus’ way of affirming to his followers that He is still with them, though his body is gone.  Spiritual gifts are given to us from God to carry on His work. Speaking in tongues may represent that Jesus brought many nationalities and cultures together, and all “tongues” were understood. Symbols of Pentecost include Wind- the breath of God, Fire- represented by the color red,  Water,- a symbol of cleansing and the Dove-representing Peace.

The Season of Easter

Easter is the first major festival celebrated by early  Christians.  Sunday is the day of Resurrection, leading to Sundays being the day of worship for Christians. The Easter season lasts for 50 days, followed by Pentecost.  In weeks following Easter day, the readings deal with the concept and mysteries of rising from the tomb and resurrection.  Because of Jesus’ sacrifice, for us, death itself is not the final say.  We celebrate Easter when someone dies and they are raised to heaven.

The Lenten Season

What is Lent?  A Season of wilderness in preparation for Christ rising from the grave. It also represents the 40 days and 40 night during which Christ was tempted by the devil. The idea of ‘giving up something’ is in recognition of Christ’s suffering which is a great opportunity for self-improvement as well as sacrifice. The bookends of this season are from Ash Wednesday to Good Friday.
