Langdoc clergy couple welcomed to Greencastle

7/18/2014

GREENCASTLE, Ind. – Indiana Bishop Mike Coyner recently shared this Glory Sighting: This sighting comes from Gobin Memorial UMC in Greencastle, where we (Marsha and I) participated in the worship service that included my “finishing” the Commissioning of Bryan and Maureen Langdoc as the new pastor (Bryan) and United Methodist-related DePauw University chaplain (Maureen). The Director of Spiritual Life for the campus was there to officially welcome both of them, with some emphasis of course on Maureen as chaplain. Bryan and Maureen were very well received, and DePauw sponsored a reception for them after worship on the lawn of east campus. One other Glory Sighting of collegiality and connection – Sam Padgett (Indiana Conference’s new Associate Director of Leadership Development – Clergy) and his family attended the worship service at Gobin just to demonstrate his support for this new clergy couple. I asked him if he had any prior connection to Bryan and Maureen, and he said, “No, I just wanted to be with one of our new clergy today who will be in RIM (the Residents in Ministry program), and this way I got to be with two of them at once.”
