Pastor Jack's Sabbatical Update #9

After I finish my project, I think I will write another book on our unexpected experiences during my sabbatical! One great praise to God I forgot to mention last week was before we left Tucson. It was Thursday before the Saturday we were to leave Tucson. Linda had taken Emma to the library and she called me and said our van was making a funny sound and the battery light ha...

It's halftime! Six weeks of my twelve week sabbatical are behind me. It has been restful, refreshing, and productive.

That will be a critical step for how this leadership training progr...

Pastor Jack's Sabbatical Update #4

"The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps" Proverbs 16:9. I experienced the truth of that verse this past week. I had flown to Greeley to assist my uncle who was hospitalized with internal bleeding and pneumonia. He and my aunt have no children, and since she is my Dad's sister, and they had done so much for my Dad and for my family, it was no s...
