September 2018 Newsletter

Posted by ureche1 on September 2, 2018 at 10:25 AM
From the Pastor�??s Desk �??In your absence, we covenant to care for our church, our programs, our worship life, and each other. Further, we covenant not to use this time to accomplish or decide alone what we have not been willing or able to do together. We will, and we expect you will also, use the time to reflect on our mutual ministry in Christ and how we can live more fully into our call as Christ�??s church. Upon your return, we invite you to share with us an overview of activities and learnings from your sabbatical. Unless otherwise agreed before the sabbatical, we expect that you will continue as our pastor and teacher for at least one year after your return.�?��??Suggested United Church of Christ Call Agreement Sabbatical Language As I write this month�??s article I am entering my last week of sabbatical. Three months totaling 13 Sundays have flown by. I have attended two great retreats and am currently enrolled in an on-line class. I have attended church in four states, worshipping with friends, colleagues and folks I didn�??t know. I have read numerous books about preaching, writing, spirituality and much more. I hope that I have developed a new habit when it comes to study and devotion time. I cannot honestly say that I have read seven days a week, but I can say that I have read and studied on a more regular basis than since my time in seminary. As well I feel that I am returning rested and renewed. Ready to try some new approaches to sermon preparation and delivery. Many of these approaches will be subtle and you may not notice them right away. However, I am confident that there will be an overall improvement in my weekly messages. I have begun to write my spiritual autobiography (topic of retreat number two). Initially I thought that this would end up being a page or two long. WRONG!! The retreat helped me to realize that this project would end up being longer and more involved. Instead of being a page or two long, it most likely will be several chapters long, covering many years and digging deeply into my memory. My goal is to have this completed by the 2019 Annual Congregational meeting in January. I will provide a preliminary report on this project (and maybe even a chapter) as well as my entire sabbatical at our Fall Congregational meeting in October. In reviewing the suggested sabbatical language that I listed above, I believe that we all have met and exceeded the items listed. As I have reviewed the worship services and messages delivered by congregational members I know that God has indeed been worshipped during my absence from St. Peters. As well I fully intend to remain the year suggested following my return and for many more years beyond that, as the will of God and the congregation calls. Thank you for allowing me this time away. It has been good even though I have missed you all. I look forward to being back with you on Sunday, September 2 at 10:30 a.m. as we gather for worship and to share a meal at the Lord�??s Table. Peace and blessings.
