We will be joined in time for Christmas by our Interim Rector, The Reverend Paul Briggs. Paul’s first Sunday with us will be on December 23rd. We look forward to many opportunities to meet and know Paul, including his first three Sunday forums.
We are in great hands with Paul’s leadership. Paul’s gifts and experience make him the ideal priest to lead our congregation to listen for where we are called next to serve the Lord. Paul will help us to create intentional space for purposeful, active listening about hopes and dreams.
Our Vestry was highly impressed with the reports we received from lay leaders at St Andrew’s in Yardley, where Paul concluded his most recent interim role. Paul shares with us that his joy in ministry is working with congregations, where “commitment to vitality in worship and Christian formation. That provides a deep sense of God’s mission, which draws people into a sharing of their gifts to reflect the love of Christ in all we do.”
Paul is married to The Rev. Barbara Briggs, who is also an Episcopal priest. Paul and Barbara have four children: Meghan, Joshua, Matthew, Caleb, and three grandchildren: Henry, Wilder, and Clive. Please visit with Paul during the forums on Dec. 23rd, 30th, and the Epiphany all-parish breakfast on January 6th.
Please view a video greeting from Paul, below.
With gratitude for your ministry,
Jim Pasquarella, Senior Warden
