The months of July and August offer a distinct change of pace with the opportunity to be more relaxed.
At the same time, it is a season of considerable behind the scenes planning. So, the Discernment Committee might suggest that my reference to a more relaxed season might apply to others but not to them. In addition to keeping them in our prayers spoken at each Sunday service, I hope you with thank the committee members whenever you see them.

One of my most important responsibilities during this interim is to do everything I can to work with the leaders of the parish to prepare for your next era with a new Rector. For my first six months with you, I have spent as much time learning about the parish, engaging in activities that are important to you, offering pastoral care, and leading worship. That will continue as we spend the next six months working to refine what we do and how we do it in ways that maximize the effectiveness of the ministries we share. We’ll be able to be more specific as time goes by.
In the meantime, I want to say again how much I enjoy being at Trinity and how much I appreciate getting to know as many of you as possible.
We give thanks to God for the opportunity to be at Trinity Church in these exciting times.
The Reverend Edward O. Miller, Jr.
