The search is over, you were with me all the while.
After more than 2 years, more than 50 meetings, thousands of miles traveled, over 100 resumes and profiles, over 1000 pages of text, thousands of emails, an emormous amount of prayer, and a little (or perhaps alot of) divine intervention - our search committee has made a recommendation to the vestry, the vestry made the call, and the priest has accepted the call. It's official, the Reverend Julie Carson is the new rector of our church.
A couple of weeks ago I made mention in a post about secret good news I had - this was, or rather is, it. While it may not shake the foundations of the blogging community, it represents the culmination of a project that consumed more than two years of my life. I am elated!
