Chuck Stewart - Deacon
I came to Skaneateles when recruited for a position at Welch Allyn, from which I retired in 2012 after nineteen years; previously I worked for GE’s Lighting Business in Cleveland for nineteen years. I have degrees from Union College, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the University of Rochester. I am pursuing a Master of Divinity degree at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School.
I am a deacon because the Holy Spirit kept nudging me, and sometimes shoving me, in this direction. As it says in the ordination rite for deacons, “you are to serve all people, particularly the poor, the weak, the sick, and the lonely” and “you are to interpret to the Church the needs, concerns, and hopes of the world.” That speaks to me.
