My name is Brin Bon and I’ve been called by the Episcopal Diocese of Texas to be the Vicar of South Austin and to start a new worshiping community somewhere south of Hwy 290, between I-35 and Mopac(ish). Yes, that’s a broad region, but I’m currently trying to learn as much as I can about all of South Austin so I can discern where our new community will focus its efforts and be able to do the most good with the resources and strengths that we have.
My purpose in starting this blog is twofold: First, I want to share my journey with those who are curious about the work of church planting and those who want to follow the progress of our new community as it takes shape.
Second, I hope this will also be an interactive tool to help me get to know more about South Austin, especially the folks who call it their home. As you read through my posts and start to see this new community unfold, I invite you to participate in a number of ways.
- You can help me learn more by sharing your own experiences and knowledge of South Austin.
- You can pray for us and our mission.
- Or, if God seems to be nudging you to be part of starting something new, you can join us in our mission of forming disciples in the Episcopal tradition thru worship, service, and spiritual community.
If any of this sounds interesting to you, I hope you’ll stay in touch. You can “follow” my blog to get my most recent posts delivered straight to your inbox, and if you want to provide feedback or share your ideas with me you can do so in the comments section at the bottom of my posts. Or you can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
