Robin is serving her third term, but she served on the Vestry before in 2005. Robin was inspired to visit an Episcopal church by the consecration of Gene Robinson as Bishop. She was impressed by St. Thomas’ clinic, attracted to corporate prayer and became fully engaged when St. Thomas became a radically welcoming congregation. Robin is the Champion for Stewardship on the Vestry, where she hopes to help people find the joy in recognizing their spiritual gifts and using them to be God’s hands on earth. She also wants to help people find the joy of giving-on placing a high value on God’s gifts to them and giving back at the same level. Robin currently lives in New Whiteland, but she is originally from Indianapolis. She lived in Carbondale, Illinois for 8 years, and that is where she met her wife, Paula, almost 34 years ago. Robin is a newlywed; her and Paula married this past June. They currently have two cat children, Zoey and Gracie. Robin has an older brother who is a nuclear physicist. He has 2 children and about to become a grandfather to twins. Robin and Paula love nature. They like to be outside, particularly with access to birds and critters. Paula is a great nature photographer. They also love to read, and when they can, participate in Round Robins and other St. Thomas activities.

Carol has worked in parish administration for the past fourteen years with the Christians, the Methodists, and now the Episcopalians. She has been at St. Thomas since May 2014.
