We will get there

We will get there

When Rev. Sian was recruiting me in 2021 for President, she said, “Just get the sanctuary built, we really need you for that.” Huh. Just get it built, right? The sanctuary has been the focus of all my terms and will continue to be so for the future, apparently. While working with the architect and the City has definitely had its trying moments, working with all of you has been wonderful. We have kept in communication and relationship, and I am so grateful. I keep saying, “We will get there!”, and I mean it. We will.

The City has agreed that we are ready to pull the permit and start construction. Our contractor is finishing up his bid update, and hopefully we will be ready to address it at the Annual Meeting and hold a groundbreaking shortly thereafter.

It has been a privilege and a joy to be President for three years, and I look forward to what is next. Thank you, all. We will get there!
