Our Chaplain, the Reverend Allen Spicer, will surprisingly reach the age of 80 very soon. According to the bylaws, he must retire after the next Annual Meeting on May 3. Allen was President of our board for many years before becoming Chaplain in 2010. His pastoral sensitivities, gracious smile, sense of humor and dedication to this ministry will forever be remembered. He and Gwen plan to eventually move to Bethany Beach. We are thrilled that Gwen will still be able to serve for a while as our Administrative Assistant! Please plan to attend the May 3 dinner at Annie’s on the Eastern Shore to give thanks for their ministry.
The Board of Managers is beginning the search for our next Chaplain. Perhaps this is a good time for us to reassess the position. Perhaps there will be someone who serves as an Interim or Chaplain-in-Charge. We are open to discerning the future with any interested clergy person who would like to work an average of 10-20 hours a week, depending on the time of year and pastoral responsibilities. We do feel the person needs to be able to get to Baltimore regularly to meet with the staff and monitor needs and assistance requests. The job description is posted below, or we will be happy to mail you a copy. Please send a letter of interest or email by March 9, 2017.
The Rev. T. Stewart Lucas, President
4 East University Parkway
Baltimore, MD 21218
