    In Spring, a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of Love.
         – Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Warmest Greetings! In a Lutheran Spring, our thoughts turn to loving the nominations of those willing to serve as Vice-President, 2 Synod Council Members at Large, or Young Adult Synod Council Person. Right?
Well, maybe it’s just me – I’m the chair of the Nominating Committee. But I know that there are people out there who would like to, and who would benefit from, serving the church in this way. We just need to find them, which is where you come in.

Please take a bit of time and see if you would like to serve or if you have men, women, or youth in your congregation who would be perfect as Vice President, Synod Council members at large, or a Young Adult Synod Council Person.

And, here’s the crux of the matter. Said men, women, or youth may never know of the opportunities to serve if they don’t hear about them. So, I am asking you to share this information with your congregation, and yes, by golly, I’m even asking you to approach people individually and ask them to serve. (Applications are due by May 1, 2022.)

Submit nominations at the link above.

Other questions may be directed to me, Nominating Committee Chairperson, Ms. Joan Blanton, integralplanning@att.net, or our synod staff liaison, Rev. Jonathan Hemphill, jhemphill@elca-ses.org.

Yours in Christ,

Joan Blanton, PhD
