Welcome to New Community Leader, Laura Giddings

 

Laura Giddings, New Community Leader

 

Dear friends and supporters,

It is with grateful hearts that we announce Laura Giddings as L’Arche Tahoma Hope’s next Community Leader/Executive Director. The mandate/search process began last September at our community weekend as we prayed our mandate prayer – asking for open hands and open hearts. Throughout the last 8 months we continued to listen and pray, trusting the movement of the spirit.
 
Laura is coming to us from her work with CHI Franciscan Health. Laura grew up in Parkland, Wa and is currently a LTH community neighbor living right down the street. It was through her children that she first got to know L’Arche Tahoma Hope. She was a parent volunteer each month when their fourth grade classes came from Charles Wright Academy to help at the Farm and Gardens. She has served on our Board of Directors since 2007. Laura will step into the new role with a deep draw to the mission of L’Arche and clear passion for the community’s new mandate.

 

Laura will be joining the L'Arche Tahoma Hope group representing the community at the National Gathering in Washington DC May 27- June 1st. Laura and Stacy will overlap for training and orientation until Stacy's last day on June 26th.
 
As a community, we are excited to welcome Laura to the role of Community Leader/Executive Director and to continue following the spirit that is alive as we move forward together into our new mandate. 

The Discernment Team,
James Bently, Pietro Boffeli, Teresa Hershberger, Sue Hudacek, Steve Kramp, Kevin King, Inga Rohde
