On Wednesday, July 6, 2016, the Rector Search Committee met. We considered a deeper understanding of discernment. We reviewed excerpts from the book Grounded in God.
Individuals shared their reflections on the definition of Spiritual Discernment, we discussed listening guidelines, sharing responsibilities, and suggestions for working toward consensus.
The team reviewed an example of an Office of Transitional Ministry (OTM) and developed the first draft of first communication with candidates.
We established communication goals between the Vestry, Diocese, and the Search Committee.
