Epilogue- April 14th

Dear Friends,

Thank you! I really appreciated the journey that we took together in these past 40 days of Lent. Your willingness to read my reflections, your encouraging comments and just the very idea of studying the Lord’s Prayer together as a community helped me to understand the Lord’s Prayer in a deeper way than ever before.

As a pastor, my next step is to go with my family on a Sabbatical for 3 months. After 2 years of planning, applying for grants, educating and gathering support from the congregation, I really can’t believe it is almost here.

I am so deeply grateful to my congregation and the many individuals within it who have gone out of their way to provide me with the support I have needed to make it happen!
In short, the topic of my sabbatical is “Family Spirituality.” We will go to many great places and spend time in the Benedictine rhythm of studying, working, resting, playing and praying together. We will also be posting updates right here on my blog. It won’t be daily- more like weekly. And the blogs will come from me, my wife and perhaps my children. So if you would like to continue to be a part of my blog- you will receive these updates. If you would like to discontinue the emails you can simply click the “unsubscribe” feature that comes with this email.
Have a wonderful Easter season. God’s abundant blessings to you!
Pastor Tim
