Be Ye Doers of the Word and Not Hearers Only Start Doing

Sally Gunn, Deacon-in-Training

Sally GunnParishioners of St. James’s,

I am having so many wonderful experiences at St. James’s not only as a deacon in training but also as getting to know many of you. Your friendliness, laughter, joy, encouragement, and compassionate desire to truly “be doers of the word” shines forth, and I am so happy to be here with each of you.

There is so much to learn liturgically, and Randy is a terrific mentoring priest and friend to help guide me along. I feel that I am progressing at a good pace and am on schedule. My school work is continuous year round with much reading, group projects, and many papers to write, and I am doing well in my work. If all continues to go well, including the big Canonical exams in November, then I will be ordained as a Deacon sometime in April 2016.

Also, I have just finished my third year of EfM and will get a summer break for that portion of my studies. Next year I will graduate from EfM.

I want to thank the congregation of St. James’s for your amazing support and genuine compassion for welcoming my husband and me into your loving Christian community.

Faithfully Yours in Christ,

Sally Gunn
