Emmanuel Church in the City of Boston
We practice the buddy system at Emmanuel Church, because we are persuaded by the African proverb, “If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Together, we have a four-fold mission for our city, for the Episcopal Church, and for the wider world:
- Provide radical welcome to people on the spiritual margins, especially members and allies of the GLBT community, and interfaith families;
- Serve and advocate for people on the economic margins;
- Strengthen and deepen the connections between music, the visual arts, and spirituality; and,
- Be good stewards of our building and resources.
