I have served on the vestry of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church for the past three years. The Vestry is the lay leadership team in the Episcopal Church. My service came at a time of personal loss and the Covid 19 pandemic. During that time, I was a part of a group of great people who served to keep things going and we did an excellent job.
For my service, I was gifted this chalice at our annual churchwide meeting. It’s nice to be recognized for doing things that help others, but I didn’t do it for that reason. Service is about so much more, it’s about being there when you get the call to help.
