Did it work? Did the symbolism apparent throughout the Celebration of New Ministry speak to us? Did the vision-casting capture anyone's imagination and heart? It got me! I have never left a diocesan service feeling so excited and so bonded to my community. I loved seeing all the young people, the families and the seniors singing, clapping and dancing. It brought to mind David dancing before the Lord. And I can't wait to be part of developing new initiatives and new ideas to support parishes and parishioners in their call to be Emmanuel. I am thrilled to be acknowledged, affirmed, encouraged and challenged. And I am delighted that Bishop Michael committed himself to stand beside us and journey with us as we respond to God's call to move to a new level of growth and vitality. I heard some great comments as I was leaving the Cathedral... "so authentic," "I've never felt so connected to my diocesan family,""that was a great blend of contemporary and traditional," "I had goose bumps at some points," "I can't wait to hear what's next." And that's exactly how I feel--I can't wait to be a part of what's next. We're going to change the world!
