Oh, the Norfolk Ward. For those of you lucky enough to have been in our ward, you know there just aren't words to describe it. "Busting at the seams" is a pretty accurate description. Sacrament meeting fills the chapel, the overflow and half of the cultural hall. Primary has 100 active children. Relief Society meets in the chapel. Priesthood meets in the cultural hall. No one meets in the Relief Society room. That all changed today.
After rumors and hype, the Norfolk Ward has been split into Norfolk 1 and Norfolk 2. The dividing lines are hard to explain. They meander to pull in priesthood and other groups to even the numbers. Our family is in the new ward, Norfolk 2. Hap Cluff is the bishop. Chris is the 1st counselor. Kurt Oborn is the 2nd counselor. Those are the only callings in our new ward. It will be interesting to see how it all works out from here. They had everyone in the new ward stand up and they released us as a group. There will be a lot of scrambling to call people in the next few weeks.
Rather than describing the boundaries, let's talk friends. Who's in whose ward???
Nancy, Jaesi, etc...-1
our new house-1 (who knows when we'll end up there??)
OK, so I know that doesn't include everyone, but you might be able to get an idea of boundaries based off of where these folks live. I'm just bummed that they didn't think it was necessary to name our wards. With all the great area names to choose from, they ended up with "1" and "2". Not good enough for me...I'm calling us the Splitsville Ward. It's gonna be great:)
