Dear Thad's Family,

We are writing to update you on our transition progress. As you probably know, Bishop Bruno visited Thad's last week and expressed his full support as we move into our next season of mission and ministry with a new leader. It was wonderful to hear the Bishop say that he considers his role as one of "midwife" to help guide us through our transition. Since the Bishop's visit, and with the encouragement of the Diocese, our search / discernment committee has begun considering possible candidates. We thank you for your continued prayers in this process, and we'll keep you updated as things move along.

As some of you know, Minnow is expecting a baby soon and thus will be taking a little break from her day-to-day duties as Thad's Board co-chair sometime in the coming six weeks. In an effort to have a continuous number of folks helping shepherd our community during this time, we've asked Ian Jack to step alongside Lindsay, the Board and the search / discernment committee as we progress through our transition. Ian is a beloved Thad's founder and one of the leaders of our band. We're so grateful for his voice, wisdom and leadership, and you can expect to hear more from him in the coming weeks.

We're thankful that each of you is a member of our community, and we continue to be prayerfully expectant and excited for the future of this awesome faith family! Please know that we're here as always for any questions or thoughts you may have.

With love,

Lindsay & Minnow (aka Mary-Bonner)
