I want you all to extend a warm welcome to SOV2's new Director of Ecumenical Outreach, Dr. Thomas Al-fakkir. As you know, we've been looking for a DEO for some time. I really don't feel that we're plugged in enough to all the other faith traditions in the area. Tom comes with an impressive background of gentle understanding - he's a master of comparitive theology and is really able to break down the barriers between peoples. You'll see him around the grounds in the next few days. He's going to be leading some tours with people from other faith communities. Make sure you give him a big hi-ho!
