Joanne Carlson Honored at Last Assembly

The Assembly gave a long, standing ovation to Joanne Carlson, assistant to the bishop for global vision and events, who is retiring in July after coordinating 25 Synod assemblies. “Joanne has a truly missionary heart,” the bishop said of her service representing SEPA to companion synods in Tanzania and the Czech Republic. The extended Carlson family, led by grandchildren carrying a banner that read “We love our Nana,” stood with Joanne.
