Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Interim Rector Called for King of Peace

The vestry (church board) of King of Peace announces that it has called the Rev. Douglas Renegar to serve during the 12-18 months needed for a search process for a new pastor and president.

Father Renegar grew up in a military family, graduating from high school in Nebraska. He was a teacher and principal prior to his attending to seminary and has a Masters in Education from East Carolina University. Ordained in 1984, he served churches in South Carolina and Virginia before coming to south Georgia to be Rector of historic Christ Church Frederica on Saint Simons Island. After more than a decade there, he worked for the church in Tanzania and at the United Nations. He has one grown daughter. Father Renegar will begin his work at King of Peace on July 11.

The contract is for six months and will be renewed one or two times as needed on mutual review by Father Renegar and the Vestry. Many of of the congregation will remember Father Renegar, as he celebrated and preached on the Sunday after Easter when I was away to officiate at a wedding in Rome, Georgia. Father Renegar will also be with us on June 13, for my last Sunday, to celebrate the Liturgy of the Word. I will preach and celebrate the liturgy of the table. I am thankful that we have such a good and faithful priest on board as interim.

I know that some anticipate a church will dwindle some during an interim. But with Father Renegar as the interim and the many gifted members of King of Peace still continuing as they have in leading music, greeting and welcoming newcomers and so on, I anticipate continued strength and growth.

Farewell Event, Thursday 6-8 p.m.
There is a farewell reception at King of Peace tomorrow evening and all in the community are invited to attend. It will be a time for giving thanks for what God has done in our midst this past decade.

The Rev. Frank Logue, Soon to be Loose Canon on Deck
