PRESIDENT’S STATEMENT - “BLESSED ARE THE POOR IN SPIRIT”
In keeping with the vision for the TIAR we have continued our work, as will be demonstrated in the reports that follow. Our committees have met regularly to achieve stated goals and objectives, assist those who have asked for our help, and to support those whose values match ours.
Our goal this year is to increase our collaboration and interface with other organizations. We also hope to recruit and retain more members, and we hope that you will join in this recruitment effort. It is vital for members to identify the current issues that concern them, brainstorm methods through which we can address these issues, participate in actions, and demonstrate support for our various projects. This is the only way our ministry can remain current as new rules, laws and punishments, processes and procedures, and new realities impact our community. We truly need you as members to continue to listen with your hearts to the needs of the community and to report these needs back to TIAR. It is not surprising that our understanding and methods sometimes need to expand or change. Even Pope Francis has suggested an updating of the Lord’s Prayer, a truly controversial undertaking! We hope that you will not be shy about innovation. We look forward to sharing a year of continuity, progression, and renewal....
President Gaynelle Wethers
