Luck’s Leaf …….March 2013
I bid you well as I go on a sabbatical pilgrimage. I am blessed by your generous care in giving me this time away. A sabbatical away from the work I love; away from people I love, and yet it is welcomed. It will be, I believe, a time of replenishment and growth for the congregation and its minister.
I leave you in the expert care of the Reverend Morris Hudgins and the congregation’s leaders. Many of you will be involved in continuing the ministry of HVUUC and your tradition of service and caring. Some will be involved especially in creating beneficial worship services; others in picking up any slack in getting the work of the church done during this sabbatical time.
The Sabbatical Team has been working for many months to prepare for this time as you can see in the helpful brochure waiting in the foyer for you. Or for answers to many questions go to the sabbatical page at HVUUC.org. Also, you can soon listen to the sermon podcast of last Sunday (2/24) for more information at HVUUC.org.
Please contact Rev. Hudgins (revmorris@HVUUC.org) for pastoral care appointments, and contact the caring team by email, call or by filling out a caring card to share your joy or sorrow for the Prayers of the Community. Rev. Hudgins and I will be in contact with each other. The Board President will call me in the event of a pressing issue or emergency.
Possibly you may see me around; please greet me. But I will return to HVUUC Sunday, June 2, and I’m sure we will have much to catch up with each other about!
