Official

It's official! If you missed the announcement, our man Jim Poirier has been called into the Presiding Bishopric.

Here's the announcement on the World Church's website.

You may also like to know that Jim and Janet will not be moving to Independence. Jim will still need to travel, but home base will be here. Canada will remain a big piece of his responsibility. After all, how long have we heard the basic instruction "In Canada, call Jim Poirier"? Can't waste that!

We are proud to have our very own Canadian at the BIG leadership table. Be very sure he won't forget his roots. If he does, some one will give his shirttail a big pull. We have experienced Jim's skills, well balanced by his concern for the people--all the people! And we're grateful that he has learned some of the essential lessons he needed to care for his own health and spiritual well-being. Not only is he "smart" he is also "wise."

Go into this new challenge with the blessing of all your friends in Canada East Jim. We'll share you with the world for a time.

  1. I have followed Jim's career ever since he was the business manager for a youth camp I served at too many years ago to remember and I am very proud to know him. I wish him all the best in his new responsibilities.
