Karen came to our church in 2015, primarily because of its non-judgmental, all-inclusive values. Recently retired at that time from a long career in nursing/administration, she volunteered to help with clerical work. A deeply committed parishioner, Karen now volunteers her invaluable expertise and time (often more than 25 hours a week) to handle whatever needs doing—communications, the weekly bulletin, scheduling, repairs, purchases, finances, and more. Add to all of that her unflappable calm and her great sense of humor. If you call Good Shepherd, she’s most likely the first one to answer the phone or return your call.
