For the last 16 months or so, Linda has been part of a search committee for a new minister – it was an involved process that meant meeting every Monday night, conducting congregational surveys, making a book of “about the church” and poring over applications, leaving town to interview and see the candidates on a neutral pulpit. Tonight marked the last meeting of the committee – a last meal together. Since Kent could only be there in spirit only, I thought it would be good to have a likeness of him present (note: this is my idea and Linda or the committee are in no way implicated).
Moving to Iowa from New Hampshire, Kent must be gently introduced to heat and humidity, and what better way to do that than commemorative Rev. Kent hand fans!
Finally, the faces behind the mask – the search committee together one last time.
