Greetings & Salutations:
It is with great joy that I greet each of you in the name of the Risen Christ. I am always thankful to God for the wonderful gift He has blessed me with my beloved Second Episcopal District family. It is my prayer that God will continue to bless the Second Episcopal District. As I was preparing this communication, I realized that we have been on this journey together for three wonderful years. You should know that my commitment, love, and excitement for you remain at the highest level possible ("I only got eyes for you!").
As we move into the 2017 Annual Conference season, I remain encouraged for our journey forward. I am looking forward to our time together when gather for the Annual Conferences of the Second Episcopal District, namely, Kentucky and Ohio Central Indiana Regions. I am praying for a mighty move of God as we gather in Louisville and Trotwood in the coming weeks. Let me take this opportunity to thank our presiding elders, pastors, and congregations for the reports you have made thus far. I must admit, I am concerned about our ability to finish well. If we are to finish well, it will require that all hands are on deck. Let's finish well!
