For those tired of the news from Rome ...

A game of "Whisper down the lane"?
Are you getting tired of the endless news and speculation from Rome?

(My personal serious favorite is Hans Kung's wonderful op-ed in yesterday's New York Times and my gossipy favorite is Andrew Sullivan's blog about the retiring pope and Monsignor Georg Gänswein who will share his apartment.)

Ianther Mills
So if Rome is beginning to bore you, here is the news of this year's clergy appointments as of March 1 from Fulton, Md., the Vatican City of the Baltimore-Washington Conference.

Foundry folk may want to note that a new pastor is coming to Asbury UMC, with whom we have strong historic ties. We will miss our friend Lou Shockley but welcome Ianther Mills who currently serves as the dean of the Cabinet. We will invite her to preach at Foundry soon.

Our new superintendent will be Joseph Daniels, Jr., who will also continue to serve as senior pastor of Emory UMC.  Our current superintendent Cynthia Moore, who recently led our women's retreat,  will move to a district in Baltimore.

We wish all those moving this year well and especially wish all the best to those who are retiring!
