Standing Committee and BDNC Announce the Launch of the Profile and Website for the 11th Bishop of The Episcopal Church in Vermont
October 9, 2018
Dear People and Friends of The Episcopal Church in Vermont,
We are pleased to announce the launch of our Profile and website for the 11th Bishop of The Episcopal Church in Vermont at http://bishopsearchvt.org. It is a thorough, accurate and honest summary of our ministry together and our hopes for the future. It represents the culmination of six months of faithful work by the Bishop Discernment and Nominating Committee (BDNC), astute guidance from our transition consultant, the Rev. Dr. Gary Butterworth, and final thoughtful review by our Standing Committee, Bishop Ely, the Canon to the Ordinary, the Chancellor, and the Treasurer. We are grateful for the inviting website design by Maurice Harris, communications minister.
We invite you to take a look and read the Profile. Please share it with clergy, bishops, and others you know who can help spread the word to potential applicants. The BDNC will be accepting applications until November 16, 2018.
We ask that you hold the applicants and the BDNC in your prayers as we proceed in our mutual discernment.
Peace and blessings –
Maggie Thompson, Chair
Bishop Discernment and Nominating Committee
Rev. Rick Swanson, President
