How can a church best respond when their priest tells them "I'm retiring," or "I've been called to another parish?" This book outlines to receiving a new ordained leader, recognizing that every parish is different. Discerning exactly what your parish needs can be both a challenge and a joy, and On the Emmaus Road affirms that you can listen to God's voice while attending to other day-to-day tasks. Based upon several years of doctoral research into the work of search committees in the Diocese of Virginia, this book has been refined through the experience of using its new methodologies in over seventy-five calls. With both traditional and creative new approaches to the clergy search process, Thorpe gives a wealth of resources for your parish to not only survive the days to come, but thrive in the midst of them.

Mary Brennan Thorpe

The Rev. Dr. Mary Brennan Thorpe served as an intentional interim rector as well as a settled rector before becoming Director of Transition Ministry and then Canon to the Ordinary in the Diocese of Virginia. She has facilitated over a hundred transitions at this point in all sorts of congregations and has consulted on others. Her doctoral research informed her work in that ministry and in this book. She has followed her own circuitous Emmaus Road to this work, having had vibrant careers in technology design and management and in public policy and advocacy before ordination. She is a graduate of Jersey City State College (BA in Music), of the Hartt College of Music of the University of Hartford (MMusEd), Virginia Theological Seminary (MDiv with honors), and Columbia Presbyterian Seminary (DMin). She also holds a certificate in the Management of High-Technology Companies through Stanford University and the American Electronics Association. She is an iconographer - one of her icons is on the front of this book - and musician, a wife, a mother of five and grandmother of five.
