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.


· Autumn Ridge · Christ’s Church of The Jesus Hour, Kansas City, KS
· People of Hope Lutheran · Rochester Mennonite
· St. John Catholic · Calvary Episcopal
· Congregational UCC Rochester · Open Arms UCC in Oklahoma City, OK
· Rochester Community Baptist Church · Good Shepard UCC in Albuquerque, NM

I look forward to hearing from each of you what transpired over your winter months and am glad to be back home at Peace UCC!
