Happy New Year! It’s a strange start to a new year, isn’t it? This time of year typically brings hopefulness and anticipation, visioning, and goal-setting.

Reflection on the road ahead feels challenging as a deep weariness has set in for many of us and our colleagues.

Greetings and blessed 2022 to all of you! My name is Shawn Mai, and I am the new board chair for the ACPE Board of Directors. For the last two years, I’ve had the privilege of serving alongside Melissa Walker-Luckett as she chaired the board. I am an ACPE Educator at Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital in St. Louis Park, MN, a first-ring suburb of Minneapolis, MN. I am married to my husband Chuck, have two children and three grandchildren. Several years ago, I decided to work four days a week and provide childcare for our grandchildren one day a week. My grandchildren offer a source for some of my most significant learning in life right now.

As we approach the final days of 2021, I want to express a big “THANK YOU” to all of our donors, supporters, and friends for your incredible generosity of time, talent, and treasure this year. Together, we have navigated another year of a global pandemic, and we have worked together to meet people in the most vulnerable moments of their lives. Your leadership, love, and service do not go unnoticed. You are appreciated for the positive difference you make in the world, and ACPE will continue to be a vibrant community of spiritual care educators and professionals because of you.
