We have completed Skype conversations with the candidates. The conversations were deeply rewarding and enriching. We are now in a period of mutual discernment as we consider the next step in the process, which is the site visit. The best way you can help the Rector Search Committee is by praying.
Assist us, Lord, in living hopefully into the future. In the face of change, help us to set unnecessary fears aside and to recognize our potential for creative response. Help us to develop a reasonable optimism when confronted by “the new” and to guard against our own defensiveness. Be with us as we remember and celebrate former times, and keep us from unreasonable yearning for them, which takes us from the work you have set before us in our time. All this we ask in the name of your Child, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
