"Why?" Wednesdays


Whether you grew up in an Episcopal church, another church, or no church at all, it is common to have questions about our religious practices, terms and traditions. In a new video series we call "Why?" Wednesdays, Father David answers the most frequently asked questions he hears.

Here at Saint John's Church, we hope these insights help you understand our worship services or faith community just a little bit better. We will have a new segment for you most Wednesdays.

If you’ve got a question about Saint John’s or the Episcopal Church, you may email it to: why@sjtulsa.org. As the year progresses, we will share Father David's weekly video answers to our commonly asked inquiries.

Come back each week, or visit our Facebook page, for new answers to "church stuff." Scroll down to see more videos.

Thanks for tuning in and have a blessed day!
