Executive Director's blog
Province 1 has a strong reputation for assuming leadership in the Episcopal Church. I am pleased to be selected to serve as the latest in a long line of able Executive Directors.
While there are many places online that you can learn a bit about me (check out A Spiritual Journey and LinkedIn), I hope we will have the opportunity to meet. I want to hear your understanding of The Dream of God and look forward to working together in response to God's call.
My gifts are as a communicator and facilitator. I have been blessed with a love of connecting people and resources. More often than not, this allows me to help turn visions into reality. I want to learn of your hopes so that we can continue building on the Province's rich legacy. I am convinced that God's Mission, which may seem impossible and feel overwhelming when we think of doing it alone, is possible when we remember our abundance and work together.
Also, with General Convention around the corner (July 5-12, 2012), there is much for us to prayerfully consider and discuss. There will be opportunities for us to physically gather - in our homes, our congregations, our dioceses, and our Province - as well as here, online, in interactive forums. Noteworthy are our upcoming Synod meetings. Your delegates and the Executive Committee will meet on November 18 at 8:30 am via conference call. Also, we will return to the Doubletree Hotel in Westborough for our Synod and PreConvention Gathering so make sure to mark the April 13-14, 2012 in your calendars.
Please let me know if there are ways your Province can help you better serve God's Mission.
