Boy oh boy did we meet a fireball today. As Christians might say, “she’s ON FIRE” for the Lord.
My producer (Sharon-Barnes Waters) introduced me to Reverend Linda Tarry-Chard, who is the Minister for New Membership, Care and Parish Life at the Riverside Church in Manhattan.
It’s that gigantic church up on 126th street (Morningside Heights), which looks like something taken from Italian skyline. That place is incredible…and especially the Nave. But even a church that big doesn’t come anywhere near the personality of Linda Tarry-Chard.
I can’t even begin to talk about her achievements; leadership roles which include everything from children’s services, to victim outreach, child-care, you name it. There are just too many. Don’t tell her I said this, but for a second, I thought she created all those titles, because one person couldn’t have done all that! (But she’s a preacher, so I trust her.)
