Additional comments

I have been an Episcopalian since I was a young child at Trinity Episcopal Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We have attended Christ Church, Springfield for more than 35 years. Over the years, my family has received many blessings for which I am very grateful. Serving on the Standing Committee for another term would be a way for me to use the knowledge I have learned in the past two years to continue the work of the Diocese in this period of transition and to give back to God, the Diocese, and the Church.
