PONDERINGS OF PASTOR KAYLA….
I feel rested and renewed to be back from sabbatical! Here is a quick recap of all the activities I was involved from January 1 - April 1, 2015. I spent 2 weeks in California and attended a “Spirit and the Arts” conference at Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley where I attended seminary. Additionally, I was blessed to spend 3 weeks in Oklahoma and New Mexico visiting my family; while there I attended an Ash Wednesday service at my parent’s church and was a guest preacher at Church of the Open Arms in Oklahoma City where I was ordained.
Throughout all 12 weeks of my sabbatical, I enjoyed attending 25 different churches and faith communities of various denominations. I took a lot of notes and am looking forward to implementing several practices, tips and techniques that I found of value from these other communities. Below is a list of all the places I visited.
