The announcement has been made

These have been interesting days in the life of the Queen-Thompson household. After much prayer and searching and after an extended period of consideration, I have accepted the call as the next rector of the Episcopal church in my hometown. It seems that this country boy is going back to the country!

It has been a surprise for many, including myself. When I left 15 years ago to attend college, I never assumed I'd return. But times change, and God has given me and my family an opportunity that we could not turn away.

I feel blessed and fortunate to be able to minister among my own people. And in many ways, I've been preparing for this my whole life.

The announcement has been made, and the transitions have begun. I will begin my tenure as rector of All Saints, Portsmouth, after the first of the year. What God has in store I can only guess, but I know it will be exciting!
