Christ is risen! Christ is risen, indeed! It was so special for me to celebrate our first Easter together, to welcome so many visitors, and to be reminded again of the promise of resurrection. My deep thanks to so many of you for the hours of planning and hard work that went into making Easter so special.

I’m writing, as I promised I would, to update you on continued shifts in our staff and staff structure as I work to build a collaborative and effective team that will lead us into the future. Change, while an important part of life, is always difficult; I am deeply grateful for our continued conversations around change and for your gracious encouragement in what is a challenging process for everyone involved.
