Dear People of Holy Innocents',

On behalf of my wife Valerie, I write with enthusiasm as we join you in Atlanta for the interim period. Thanks to the hospitality of the wardens, the welcome and commitment of the vestry, and the care and guiding wisdom of the clergy and staff, we are getting settled and beginning our work together.

Every day I learn something new about Holy Innocents. Person by person and bit by bit I am piecing together the joyful collage of this parish. The recurring pleasure of my education as your Interim Rector is the process of discovering your history, expectations, dreams, set-backs, accomplishments, and joys. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you and your family and friends.

To maintain and broaden momentum, the staff and Vestry will be going on retreat in the coming weeks to do interim strategic planning in anticipation of the calling of a new rector. We will share a summary of that planning in the weeks ahead. In the meantime, I look forward to our first Sunday together -- January 29th.

This comes with my prayers and gratitude for the blessing of being among you.

The Rev. Bob Dannals
