WHAT IN THE HECK IS A CHASUBLE???

Have you ever found yourself struggling to explain what we do in the Episcopal church and coming to one of “those” words (“chasuble” or “thurible” or  “purificator”) that you intuitively know the meaning of but can’t quite find a way to explain to your friend?  The Ultimate Quest:  A Geek’s Guide to (The Episcopal) Church is just what you need.  C.K. Robertson, Canon to the Presiding Bishop for Ministry Beyond the Episcopal Church says that this book “will make you smile, laugh, learn, read it again, and invite other to join you in the great adventure.”  Come see what other resources we have.
