Kari Glover’s first introduction to Epiphany Parish came in 1979, when my husband Thad Alston and I inquired about having our wedding at Epiphany. Thad was a long-time Episcopalian. I previously was confirmed in the Presbyterian Church. Neither of us knew much about Epiphany, but we knew Thad’s mother would be very happy that we were marrying in a beautiful Episcopal Church. Beginning a few years after our marriage, we became faithful parishioners at Epiphany, raising our daughters Samantha and Eva (I was confirmed with Eva, our younger daughter) here and participating in numerous ways. Thad served on the vestry years ago. After retiring in 2009 from a law career of over 30 years, I attended and completed the EFM classes, assisted with the adult education program on Sundays, traveled on two pilgrimages, and deepened my relationship with the Epiphany community in numerous other ways. My Christian faith, and my connection to Epiphany Parish, have become of primary importance to me. I bring much experience serving on boards. I am honored to be nominated to serve on this vestry.
