E. Lucius “Andy” Anderson III as its fourth executive director effective in early September.  Anderson joins St. Mary’s Sewanee to continue building upon St. Mary’s Sewanee’s vision, expanding reach and facilities development that have marked its growth over the last decade.Andy AndersonAnderson most recently has served as the rector of the Church of the Nativity in Huntsville, Alabama, since 2003. Anderson brought stability and growth in ministries to the 1800-member parish, initially leading the parish through a long-range visioning process that resulted in master planning and a $4.2 million successful capital campaign to renovate the 1859 National Historic Landmark church and eliminate the parish’s debt to acquire adjacent property in downtown Huntsville. After physically “building the church,” Anderson spent his energy and leadership “building the church spiritually in formation, mission, and ministry,” embracing the Catechumenate for new member incorporation, RenewalWorks Spiritual Development Ministries of Forward Movement, and expanding the parish’s outreach efforts including establishing one of the South’s premier local grower’s and artisan markets, The Greene Street Market at Nativity. Nativity has a long tradition of supporting Centering Prayer, and Anderson is in the process of becoming a certified Centering Prayer workshop facilitator through contemplative outreach.Before his tenure at Nativity, Anderson served as rector of Grace Church in Anderson, S.C., where he led the parish through extensive strategic planning and a capital campaign to renovate and expand the historic church. Anderson initially served in ordained ministry at the Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta, Georgia, as canon educator for children, youth and family ministries, embracing and leading a vision for ministry that saw tremendous growth.Dale Grimes, president of the Board of Trustees of St. Mary’s Sewanee, said, “The Board of Trustees is thrilled to welcome Andy as the new executive director of St. Mary’s Sewanee. Andy is absolutely the right person to take on these duties at this time. He brings to St. Mary’s Sewanee his extensive experience in spiritual development programming and activities, service to and leadership in the Episcopal Church, financial and administrative acumen and significant and proven fundraising ability. We are excited about the possibilities for our future with Andy as our executive director as we enter a new phase of growth in programming and campus development.”In recent years, St. Mary’s Sewanee has accomplished a number of goals in the plans envisioned by the board. The Anna House, completed four years ago as the Center’s newest lodging facility, has been fully brought on line, providing more hospitality options for its guests by allowing accommodation of larger groups as well as simultaneous use by multiple groups. The quality and number of its programs have increased, including a new relationship with the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation, which has commenced a four-part program, the Soul of Leadership, at St. Mary’s Sewanee. Many other programs offered by long-time St. Mary’s Sewanee presenters have been able to make use of the Center’s new and upgraded facilities on a year-round basis.Andy Anderson returns to the Mountain with the enthusiasm and skills to lead St. Mary’s Sewanee forward in this ongoing expansion of facilities and programs. “I first experienced St. Mary’s as a thin holy place of spiritual connection to God on an Advent Quiet Day my first year at the School of Theology in 1991. I returned to St. Mary’s many times during seminary years to know the quiet and refreshment from the beauty of holiness St. Mary’s offers,” Anderson remarks.  “After beginning a Centering Prayer practice in the late 1990s, I began attending retreats and other events at St. Mary’s. It’s a part of my spiritual DNA and has continued to enrich and enliven my life and ministry. I have been nurtured by St. Mary’s mission and its heart of prayerfulness and it will be a privilege to give back to this sacred and beautiful place that has given so much to me and to others. I am excited to continue my journey in the capacity as Executive Director and look forward to the great work of building upon what John Runkle and the fine staff and St. Mary’s Board have launched. I believe in our mission, having served with fundraising efforts to help get us where we are today. I look forward to leading the efforts to allow others to be a part of contributing to St. Mary’s mission with their time, talent, and financial resources.”A native of Statesboro, Georgia, Anderson holds a Doctor of Ministry and a Master of Divinity honoris causa from The School of Theology at Sewanee, a Master of Business Administration in finance from Georgia State University, and a Bachelor of Arts in history from the University of Georgia. Prior to ordination in 1994, Anderson had a successful career in corporate banking with the SunTrust Banks.  He has served the wider church and Sewanee in many capacities and looks forward to strengthening St. Mary’s connections to the wider church as well as in interfaith collaborations.  He and his wife Tippy (the former Tippen Harvey of Rome, Georgia)  have been married for almost 36 years and have two adult children, Case and Sally, who like Andy and Tippy, consider Sewanee home.

Top of wallet means something different now

first_img 50SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Tyler Atwell Web: Details Top of wallet is a commonly used phrase understood to mean your card is the first to be reached for when a wallet is opened. However, with less wallets being opened and more online purchases being made, the techniques to stay top of wallet have to change as well.The advancements in mobile banking, digital payments and mobile wallets have developed a desire within consumers to want a perfect blend of traditional and digital service. Mobile wallets are gaining more and more traction on a monthly basis with tech savvy members, which can be either a blessing or a curse. While of course having your own digital wallet would be ideal, right now the fight is to be the funding account behind them, and the first task being sure that your card is supported in the types of applications.Apple, Android, and Samsung Pay all have options to put in a credit or debit card at the first launch of the wallets and the ability to add additional card. Just like with a physical wallet however, there is the ability to choose a default card, with varying difficulties of using any other card.Keep in mind that not all purchases even give the consumer the chance to choose a payment option. Putting aside cards that aren’t accepted with certain services, some payments happen without user authorization. Take Uber for example. They have changed the game when it comes to member experiences with payments, but in a way they may hurt any financial institution not fortunate enough to be assigned the sought after primary card position within the app as most transactions take place in the background whenever they take a ride.There are countless instances in which consumers input a card to make a payment one time and either the service assigns it as default, or they never put in another option. So really, instead of competing to be top of wallet, really credit unions are competing to be the only card in wallet. Makes the thought of having to open a wallet to find a card and having to consciously choose to flip past it to find another seem like a dream to some.Traditionally the fight for top of wallet took place on the battlefield of perks, cash back and rewards. Which of course it still is, but is also taking place on another front which may or may not be more difficult; making members aware of what digital services your branch has and supports.New payment options and mobile banking through advances are both good things, providing more ways to engage with members. But that is the bottom line, staying relevant in the digital shift really falls on credit unions’ ability to understand and participate in these new technologies.last_img read more

Classy Taylor too much for Gladiators in CPL Women’s T10 opener

first_imgNLCB Revellers 78-2 (Taylor 36, Cooper 22*, King 15; Matthews 1-5) beat Courts Gladiators 74-2 (Matthews 46*, Kycia Knight 24; Isaac 1-13, Henry 1-13) by 8 wicketsA CAPTAIN’S knock from Stafanie Taylor powered her NLCB Revellers to a breezy 9-wicket win over Courts Gladiators in the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) Women’s T10 NLCB Challenge played at Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Trinidad.Gladiators recovered from a slow start to end with 74-2 from their allotted 10 overs. Windies star all-rounder Hayley Matthews stroked an unbeaten, blistering 46 with Kycia Knight making 24. The pair added a strong second-wicket partnership of 54 to stabilise their team.Stacy-Ann King and Britney Cooper got the Revellers’ chase off to a steady start, before King was trapped lbw by Gladiators captain Afy Fletcher. Taylor then put on a show, cutting her second ball to the point boundary to set the tone for what was to follow.The Windies Women skipper continued to find the boundary with ease and, combined with some hard-run twos, raced to 36 from 17 balls before falling to Matthews, with the scores level and looking to smash the winning runs and finish the game in style.The game was well won by then, with Cooper stepping up from the support role, first with King, then with Taylor. She smacked the second ball of the final over straight back over the bowler, Guyanese Shabika Gajnabi’s head for four and sealed the victory in fitting style.Earlier, Matthews and Knight batted with increasing confidence and fluency as Gladiators recovered from the loss of Sheneta Grimmond for a duck, after the Guyanese was bowled by Caneisha Isaac.The West Indies pair shrugged off the woes and held their nerve to accelerate from 27-1 at halfway to 74-2 after their 10 overs. In the end, Matthews smashed seven fours and a six while Knight also hit a six before succumbing to Chinelle Henry.The two sides meet again in the Courts Invitational this afternoon ahead of the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) final.last_img read more
