The Search Committee and the Vestry spent many hours drafting, discussing, and revising the text of the profile. In addition, we had numerous fruitful exchanges with Bishop Gates and his staff, resulting in material improvements in the final product. Most importantly, the questionnaire, Parish forums, and numerous conversations provided invaluable information and insights as we drafted the Profile text. We believe the result of all this work is a Profile document we can all be proud of, capturing as it does the Advent’s rich history, her vibrant life today, and the promise of our future.
