Meet Susan Landry

Dear Griffin District,

Greetings in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ!

I am Susan Gary Landry, greeting you today as your new District Superintendent. You have been in my prayers since I first learned that I might be working with you. Those prayers will continue. You have been in the care of my esteemed colleague and friend, the Reverend Richard Winn for these last 7 years, and I know you will miss him, as will I. Truly, the Cabinet will not be the same without him! However, we all wish him well as he steps into this new chapter in life and are excited to see what God does through him and his wonderful wife, Karell in the days and years to come.

I’m sure you are aware that the legacy district of LaGrange and most of the Griffin district will be coming together to form the new Southwest District 8. (https://www.ngumc.org/district-restructure) I step into this role as your Superintendent with you joyfully and humbly, in the full understanding that I have much to learn. I will be listening to you, even as I trust that I will bring strengths to bear for our efforts.

I envision that we will come together to form a stronger church in this region to meet the challenges of our time. I’m sure you have already made adjustments in many ways, including new ways to worship. It was necessary to find new strength within ourselves and for our community.

My goal is to discover how to best build on our collective strengths, and aid in areas of challenge. We will be leaning into our connection as we discern local opportunities to share Christ’s love, making Disciples for Him for the transformation of the world.

Allow me to add: This transformation begins with you and with me, as we open ourselves to the work of God through the Holy Spirit! I am excited about this moment in time, following the call to be especially alert, and critically thoughtful for how we might best love our neighbors. This call has not changed through the ages, and it will not change until Jesus comes again. Yes, I am encouraged and excited as I look forward to working side by side with you!

Susan
