Special Announcement

Dear Friends,

It is with a mixture of joy and sadness that I let you know that I am in transition. My husband, the Rev. Bryon Hansen has been called as Senior Pastor for Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church (ELCA) in Seattle, Washington. I will be leaving my position as Canon to the Ordinary as of October 1, 2014.

It has been an honor and a privilege to serve this diocese and Bishop Beisner for the past 7 ½ years. During that time, there have been many changes and developments that have been exciting and hopeful. I believe that we are in a healthy place and are well-positioned to meet the opportunities and challenges of the future.

My professional future is, as yet, unclear. This will be a period of discernment for me and the first time in my life that I haven't known exactly what my next job will be before I have completed my current one!

Over the next 3 ½ months, I hope to have the opportunity to say "goodbye" to you. I am aware that a good "leave-taking" is the best preparation for what will come next. When the new Canon to the Ordinary arrives, the bishop intends for there to be some overlap. I know that you will welcome that person and share with them our common mission to "make disciples, raise up saints, and transform communities for Christ."

There will be much more to say and share over the next few months. There will be a variety of venues for this. Please feel free to contact me to ensure that we have time to make a happy ending together.

With faith, hope and love,
Canon Britt
