Here we go! On August 16th, we will begin our journey together – to deepen faith, live well, and enact justice. Pete and I have been packing – literally. On July 1, we moved from Littleton to South Boulder. We’re getting settled, learning the layout of our new King Soopers, navigating the spots of heavy traffic in Boulder, and soaking up the beauty of the Flatirons.
Two of our kids, Michael and Meghann, are students at CU. Although we don’t expect to see them much, they say they are looking forward to free laundry, home-cooked meals, and quiet bedrooms away from the chaos of college living. Pete’s kids live in the New York City area now. They graduated from CU, and they hope to visit soon to get their Boulder fix. It’s great to be here.
And we can’t wait to join you on August 16th for the annual Homecoming and Water Communion worship service. Water Communion is a tradition in Unitarian Universalism and a way we restore our connection to one another. It is a full church service for all ages. Nursery will be provided. Please bring a vial or small jar of water from a place that is meaningful to you.
The following weekend (August 21-22), I will attend the All Church Retreat until Saturday afternoon before returning to the church to hold the regular worship service on Sunday morning. While I am there at the retreat, we will have a transition ritual to honor Diana McLean. She and I have met several times so I can hear about the wonderful summer you have shared with her. Let’s thank her for her ministry!
Starting August 17th, my office hours will be on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Often, I will lead classes on Tuesday evenings and attend meetings on Wednesday evenings. My day off will be Monday. On Fridays, I will study and write.
You will be able to contact me by phone:303-494-0194, Ext. 4

Again, I can’t wait to join on the journey. See you August 16th!
