WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE UTAH DIOCESE
BISHOP SEARCH CANDIDATES REVEAL
By Mary McEntire
The Nominating/Search Committee met in person from January 11-14 with the “semi-finalist” candidates nominated to become the 12th Episcopal Bishop of Utah at a hotel in Salt Lake City: fortunately all candidates and committee members were present. (This was exactly two years after the ten members of our committee were elected!) After a prolonged Covid delay and countless Zoom meetings, it was exciting to have several days of personal interaction with this impressive and highly-qualified group. Our committee agreed that our meeting later this week to select the slate of three-to-five “finalists” to forward to the Standing Committee will be extremely difficult and we continue to ask for your prayers to help us discern the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our work. This final slate will be introduced to the diocese by the Standing Committee on YouTube on Friday evening, January 28, at 7 p.m. (see utahbishopsearch.org home page for the link).

Bible Study at All Saints
Would you be interested in a story about a brave woman striking down a mighty general? Or Gideon’s small army, carrying only trumpets and torches, defeating the powerful Midianites? What about an incredibly strong guy with long hair who falls in love with the beautiful, but dangerous Delilah?
Then join us for a Bible Study of the Book of Judges! We will meet weekly via Zoom, Wednesdays at 7:00 pm, for about an hour. Class began on January 19 and runs for 8 weeks (there will be no class on March 2, Ash Wednesday).
