    1. Gary,
      The hope will be that there will be AD that will cover CT. It is an issue of finding someone who is available. The AD’s are coming out of the Leadership Learning Communities and we did not have any churches in CT respond to the LLC’s.

  1. Great news, David and Gershwin! We may yet come out reconfigured, renewed, and re-vitalized! David, does your area include us here in Eastern MA/Greater Boston? Let me know – I’ll also email you at your normal address —
