Bishop Out of the Box

Please join us on the third Wednesday of each month, as we get out of the doors of the church and into the community. The next Bishop Out of the Box will be on Ash Wednesday, March 6. Bishop Scanlan will be distributing Ashes to Go in the Main Rotunda at the Capitol in Harrisburg.

For questions, contact the Rev. Canon Dan Morrow, (971) 258-4258, e-mail: dmorrow@diocesecpa.org 

 

About Bishop Out of the Box
It’s easy to get stuck, to wonder about what we can do to let people know about God’s love, to feel like what we are doing just isn’t working. Many times the key to overcoming this “stickiness” is by experimenting, feeling free to fail, taking low-key risks, and getting “out of the box.”

So, this year we are aiming to practice what we preach! Bishop Out of the Box is an attempt to showcase brave, innovative, and community-focused missional initiatives that you can be a part of, you can emulate and you can use as inspiration for your own experiments.

Each month, Bishop Scanlan and Canon Morrow head out into the community to showcase easy ways to share God’s love, easy ways to live out The Way of Love, and easy ways to get “out of the box.”

November
The Nov. 21. Bishop Out of The Box was a walk-about at the Lancaster Central Market from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.  We interviewed market vendors and customers on camera and asked the following questions; “What are you grateful for this year?” and “What are your hopes for the future?”We compiled the interviews into two separate videos. We released the videos on social media and on our website on Thanksgiving Day. Watch below.

In the second video, we asked people  “What are your hopes for the future?”

September

In September, Bishop Out the Box was an Agape Love Feast along
the Susquehanna River in downtown Harrisburg. St. Stephen’s Episcopal
School Children stopped by for a visit. We were able to talk to and pray with
passers-by.
