Welcome to the Life and Work of Reconciliation
Welcome to our website. We are an Episcopal congregation that has been serving Corpus Christi for twenty years. This year we are in a leadership transition and are in a process of re-discerning our identity and purpose. The direction we believe God is calling us in this community is on restoring relationships with God and one another.
In a world that is increasingly and painfully estranged and fractured, we envision relationships with one another, with the environment, and with God that are compassionate, life giving, mutually enriching, and respectful of the sacred that is present in all people and things.
Through prayer and reflection and home group meetings, the leaders and members of Reconciliation have discerned that our focus as a congregation in Corpus Christi is to Be Blessed to be a Blessing. This year, we feel called to focus specifically on six opportunities.
IMPROVE THE APPEARANCE AND USE OF CHURCH’S FRONT LAWN TO BE A BLESSING TO OTHERS Meditation garden, recreation venue, community garden, farmer’s market, landscaping.
