SEPTEMBER 18-25, 2011
Yesterday, along with saying my good byes, I announced that I have accepted a call to be the Associate Rector at the Church of the Holy Comforter, Charlotte, NC. The adjustment from New York to Charlotte is going to be difficult, but I am thrilled to have found a community that resembles Incarnation in sincerity and warmth. I trust that this next step will honor and build upon my wonderful time here.
This is my final E-minder (sniff, sniff) but it is a pleasure to introduce my friend and successor, the Rev. Virginia (Ginger) Strickland, ginger@churchoftheincarnation.
with love and gratitude, Amanda
