Natalie Gabbard, Executive Council
I ran for Executive Council because I felt called to give back to the diocese that has given me so much over the last 30 years. I have been involved in the Diocese of Lexington in many ways; as a member of the youth program, as a Director of Reading Camp, as a Convention deputy, on the Leadership Team, and many other things over the years, but my time on the Executive Council has been the most rewarding role for me. The relationships and bonds that I have formed with my fellow members have helped me to grow as a leader and to strengthen my faith in the Episcopal Church. It has been an honor to be a part of the strategic planning and vision of our diocese while on Executive Council. It is a difficult time in our diocese, both financially and emotionally, but we are strong. There is a song we sing with our Godly Play class before we present our story, “Be still and know that I am God”. I ask you all to be still and listen. Are you being called?

Barbara Crain, Executive Council
I originally ran for Executive Council in 2009, in order to broaden my knowledge of the Episcopal Church beyond my own parish. While serving as a member of the Executive Council, I felt a personal responsibility to support and be involved in various aspects of diocesan life. A bi-product of my participation was my election as First Lay Alternate to the 2012 General Convention and my participation in this aspect of our Church. All the people whom I have met and the knowledge I have gained have given me a wider vision and appreciation for the work and influence of the Episcopal Church. Now as I complete my second term on Executive Council, I feel I have functioned as a small part of the body of Christ and pray my involvement with the Church has contributed at least half as much as the benefit I have received.
