The Revd. Andrea (Andi) Taylor is a fabulous Priest in the Episcopal Church.
Her official title at St. Boniface Church (Episcopal) on Siesta Key, FL is "Associate Rector".
That's a nice enough title for those who think that titles are important.
BUT IT DOES NOT TELL THE WHOLE STORY.
For you see, the story is more important than the title.
SO HERE IS THE STORY.
Andi has been a consistent, centered, trustworthy, wise, and discreet presence at St. Boniface Church in the 32 months since our Rector for twenty years (Ted Copland) retired.
It's been an unusual and uncertain time in our parish life, with lots of joys and hopes, and with not a few sadnesses and disappointments. (That's normal in an Episcopal Parish after a long term tenure of a well respected Rector).
In all of this our dear and beloved Andi has been a calm, wise, centered and un-anxious leader.
Alleluia ( or words to that effect)
