Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina

Retired Clergy and Spouses

Anchoring and Spontaneity

by Wayne Kinyon, EDUSC Chaplain to the Retired

I am thinking about two words: Anchoring and Spontaneity.

Canon d'Rue Hazel of the diocesan staff was with us at our recent retiree gathering at All Saints', Clinton. d"Rue made her presentation following lunch. As she began, most of the wives and widows were still busy in the kitchen, cleaning up and putting the leftovers into containers for people to take along after the meeting. After a bit, they slipped back into the meeting room. But when d"Rue began, sitting before her were quite a few retired clergymen. d"Rue had passed out to us sheets on which were listed  the current vacancies in the diocese, including several part-time positions, which might be of interest to retired priests. The ensuing conversation brought out an interesting contrast, which I thought and continue to think most useful.
