What is the Episcopal Church?
We are 1.9 million Christians in the United States, Honduras, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Taiwan, Micronesia, Ecuador, and Venezuela, whose roots are from the Church of England. We are part of the Anglican Communion, a group of at least 70 million Christians who are united in communion with the Church of England through the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Jesus and the disciples on their spring break trip to Samaria. Jesus is left behind when the disciples go out to whatever the Samaritan equivalent of Dairy Queen was, and Jesus stays behind. The encounter he has with the woman of Samaria must have seemed really important to John, the author of the Gospel because it is one of the longest stories he relates.
