Days before Thanksgiving, Episcopalians from all over the state gathered at Calvary to celebrate the 33rd Annual Convention of the Diocese of West Tennessee. It was a wonderful party, a sacred gathering of mission-minded brothers and sisters. We heard from excellent speakers, shared in glorious worship, and renewed our gospel purpose in the world.
This event could not have happened without dozens and dozens of volunteers from Calvary. As I walked around the church over those days, I was inspired to see so many bright Calvary faces, welcoming people to our church home. The sheer delight was radiant and made this convention the best I have ever attended.
I know I can never thank you enough for the gift of time and joy you shared with our diocesan friends, but please accept this note of thanks, particularly to those who chaired the convention committees, from me and from a grateful church! Convention committee chairs were: John Denton, Madge Deacon, Cash Shields, Malinda Lewis, Linda Nelson, Julie Spears, Gwen Owen, and Lucia Crenshaw.
