Drop-off….and be blessed!

 

Memorial Day signals the beginning of summer, bar-b-ques and all things “hot;” hot days, hot dogs and hot summer romances (hopefully).  Statistically, it also begins a trend where church attendance drops. Because of vacations and great weather, people often will choose to skip worship so that they can have longer weekends of parties and time away.

 

Is this a good thing or a bad thing? I’ve heard pastors bemoan this fact, commenting that summer vacation for kids and great weather isn’t a good enough excuse to abandon one’s church community. Just because school is out and the temperatures rise, doesn’t mean that worship stops.

 

I can agree to a point. I don’t like the idea that in the Spring or Fall I’m preaching to a congregation of 75 people, but in June it’s only 40. It’s not a great feeling. But, I understand the desire to go away for the weekend to hike, camp and sit by a lake.  During the summer drop off I hope that if you aren’t in our church that you take the opportunity to visit another church wherever it is that you’re enjoying your long weekends. Or, that you will engage in a spiritual practice – yoga, meditation, journaling, spiritual reading or even a labyrinth walk.

 

When you’re not at church you are greatly missed. You are a part of our wonderful family and your presence is both vital and treasured. But, reality is that summertime means vacation, trips and get-aways. I say go for it – enjoy and be blessed!  When you come back share stories, pictures and all that you’ve learned and experienced while “re-energizing.”

 

Remember that just as “…the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” [Joshua 1:9c], the church and your church family will be with you also. And we’re excited for your return!

 

May you have a blessed and spirit-filled summer.

 

- Pastor Michael

Sabbatical

 

So, as hopefully everyone knows by now, I am now on Sabbatical for the month of June.  The purpose of the Sabbatical is to provide a time of re-creation, rest, and renewal; a time to get away from the stress and pressure of the ministry.

 

While I am on Sabbatical I will be doing my best to avoid emails and other church related business.  To help me achieve this, please send Prayer Requests to Pastor Michael at leadpastorucb@gmail.com.

 

As always, anything dealing with building administration or scheduling can go through Bridget, the office administrator, at ucboffice@gmail.com. 

 

While trying to achieve the above goal of a Sabbatical I will also attempt to write a Musical Sermon like the minstrel story tellers – a.k.a. “Alice’s Restaurant.” But I will give a warning that it may fail.   If it works, you’ll hear the results in July.  If it fails you probably don’t want to hear it.

 

I also hope to finish reading The Book of Joy, which I think you are all familiar with by now. I will also get started on  SPQR: A History of Ancient Rome by Mary Beard. Rome, though not where Christianity was conceived, it is where it was born and developed.  It will also be some preparation for our trip to Italy in September (vacation, not sabbatical).

 

In addition, I would like to study guitar music theory, visit another local church and learn a little Italian. This might be a bit to pack into one month, given that the primary objective is rest, but I will give it my best.

 

See you in July.

 

-Pastor Greg
