Just completed our small group conversation. Linda Markway, Ann Albrecht, Angie Abood were all present in Linda's room via Zoom. Gail Trippett was present from Indianapolis via Zoom. Kate Kitslaar and Maureen Kottenstette were present by phone. We had a deep conversation in which we shared our hearts and the state of our houses. It was a blessed time and truly strengthened the communal bonds we share. We are grateful for the opportunity to be together. Our relationships are grace and blessing for each of us. Thank you to the Governance Communal Discernment Committee for enabling us to share in this manner. We believe that our interconnection is what is keeping us actively engaged in our shared mission!
