The Vestry & Fr. Edwin are excited to announce the following appointments of our Church Wardens for 2015:
Senior Warden: Loy S. Turner
Junior Warden: Holt B. Grace
The new wardens and our other new Vestry members, Collette Parker and Dallas Wynn, were commissioned to their new ministries in worship on Sunday, January 25.
The priest, wardens, and rest of the Vestry are preparing to go on retreat at Camp Mikell next weekend, Jan. 30 - Feb. 1. It is the Vestry's primary opportunity of the year to learn about their responsibilities from other church leaders, including other vestries, share their personal pilgrimages of faith with one another, and "dream & scheme" - inspired by the Holy Spirit - about our life together as a parish community. Importantly this year, they will be reviewing the report of the Parish Retreat Workgroup and using it to set a course forward. Please keep them in your prayers daily through Feb. 1, asking they be guided by Holy Wisdom into a deeper knowledge of the love of God in Christ, and of how that love will continue to blossom at Good Shepherd and be shared with neighbors near & far.
