As the Interim Rector, serving at a time of transition from the previous Rector’s departure and the calling of a new Rector, my role here is to help carry on the work of the Church while taking an inward look at where the church has been and where it hopes to go. This is a richly talented and committed fellowship of faith.
Though I have only been serving here for a couple of months, my history with Church of the Good Shepherd goes as far back as its beginning, which closely coincides with my seminary preparation and ordination. This parish, just starting, help fund a ministry I did while in seminary to the inmates at the “Special Unit” at Limestone Correctional Facility. My experience with them over the term of two and a half decades is that when God call, they step up. Each time I have walked in the door, I have been warmly welcomed, listened carefully to, and empowered by their support.
If you decide to worship at the Church of the Good Shepherd, I am confident that you will experience what I experience with them.
