In this episode, we introduce the podcast hosts, explore baptism — what it is and what it means to be baptized, and hear Justin Smith’s Baptism story. Justin is an active young adult at St. Mary’s in Kansas City, Missouri.
The Rev. David Kendrick — St John’s Episcopal Church, Springfield, the Rev. Collin Larimore — Grace Episcopal Church, Carthage, and Clare Stern-Burbano — Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral, Kansas City host sessions that include conversations, interviews, and even an occasional sermon.
We want to introduce the Episcopal Church from multiple perspectives and with different voices, utilizing social media to find out what questions students may have about who we are and what we do. Guest speakers, including college students from around our diocese, are already being scheduled for future sessions.
We do not currently have a physical presence on college campuses in our diocese, but we think podcasting offers a great opportunity to meet young adults where they are and share our faith in a way that is personal, comfortable, and always accessible. We hope that these sessions will be a bridge to connect college students with local parishes and with other young adults.
