Haste Ye Back

Sep 14, 2022

During the past several months I have been traveling throughout the Diocese providing services for many of you taking long overdue and delayed Sabbaticals. This has been a very rewarding experience, providing me with an opportunity to revisit parishes and renew connections that were suspended during the worst of Covid. I am grateful for these many invitations and look forward to more in the near future.

On September 15th, – God and Delta willing – I shall be leaving for my own long delayed return visit to the Diocese of Aberdeen and Orkney in the Scottish Episcopal Church. Bishop Anne Dyer has asked me to spend a month working with two parishes in her Diocese that are without clergy and where their future is open to what we are calling ‘ enhanced Lay Ministry.’ I am very much looking forward to this trip as a ‘mini-sabbatical’ for myself.

During my absence, through October 17th, The Rev. Dr Ken Swanson will be covering my responsibilities as Canon Chaplain. Ken will be available for consultation and conversation, in the same manner as I have been.
