“I didn’t get the job so much as I just barged in and took it. We’d been trying different allergen-free breads since Easter but none of them were working real well. People were starting to grumble about it and losing sight of the importance of us all literally sharing one bread.
“This bothered our Rector. He touched on it in a sermon saying that this was an issue that clearly made him unhappy. So I thought that if something is bothering my brother who has done so much for me I AM GOING TO FIX IT!”
Our journey to find a new rector continues to be remarkable and rewarding. Throughout the process the Discovery and Discernment Team has engaged in prayerful discussion and discernment that has led us to a deeper understanding of our identity and our vision. Participation in the process included the entire congregation, who were given the opportunity to participate in a survey and to attend multiple forums. In this profile, we provide an overview of who we are, how we wish to grow, and the type of clergy we seek.
