Yesterday I had the pleasure of speaking with all of our candidates for vestry. We had such a strong slate this year. They represent the depth and breadth of our Restoration leadership bench. I am thankful to God that so many people come forward in so many different venues and offer their experience, talents, and time for the sake of the work that God is doing in our church.
Restoration, you are generous, creative, and strategic with your resources. It is my great pleasure and honor to partner with you on so many adventures.
In our polity, your vestry works closely with the rector for the purpose of discerning and funding a strategic plan that guides the programs and activities of the church. They pray a lot. They listen to the Holy Spirit and to people in the congregation. They take faithful risks and careful steps. They rejoice in the momentum of growth and depth that is happening around our church.
