From the Bishop Search Committee:
We need your input!
The Bishop Search Committee invites all members of the Diocese of Olympia to share in a conversation about our hopes for the next bishop.
During the month of August, you are invited to participate in a facilitated “Holy Conversation.” The conversations will focus on the vision for the Diocese and how the bishop and staff can support congregations throughout our Diocese in living out their missions. The data gathered in the Holy Conversations will help form the core of the diocesan profile – the descriptive document we will publish to seek applicants to serve as the Ninth Bishop of Olympia.
We want to hear what you believe to be the skills, qualities, and gifts our next bishop will ideally have that will lead our diocese forward in the next ten to fifteen years. What are the most critical issues facing the Diocese of Olympia? All of your input will be compiled and compared to help us discern more clearly where the Holy Spirit is leading us in this critical work.
Holy Conversations will be held in each region of the diocese. Specific locations, dates, and times for the Holy Conversations will be published next week.
The Bishop Search Committee knows our work cannot flourish without your prayers, and we are grateful for them. We look forward to seeing you at a Holy Conversation in the coming weeks!
