I am truly grateful to Trinity for offering sabbatical time to our staff for rest and renewal. It is time for me to be on sabbatical and I will be gone from July 18 to October 22.
My plans for sabbatical will focus on:
- Rest and renewal
- Spiritual growth through retreat time and reading
- Time with family, college roommates, and friends
- Research into outreach ministry to make connections with families and others in our communities with an emphasis on immigrant communities. I will be working to find ways to do this not only through our ministry at Trinity, but also in connection with the Mission Community Food Pantry, as a multifaceted way to connect with others of all ages for both spiritual and physical needs
- Working on the home To-Do list
While I will be stepping away from my duties at Trinity, I will continue to co-direct the Food Pantry during this time so you may see me at Mission on pantry distribution days. I know I will miss being with all of you while I am away, but I look forward to where God will be at work in my life and ministry through this renewal time.
