PASTOR DAVE’S SABBATICAL - I am preparing for a sabbatical this June and July, and will miss you all very much. I plan to spend part of the time wrestling with how I/we weave together traditional roles of pastor and friend and how we might continue to healthily live in to that. Before June, I want to talk with you about it (or whatever else). I will be at Panera (66th and O) for coffee from 9:30-11:30 the next three Wednesdays. Also, PLEASE call/text/email for lunch, a bike ride, etc. in these weeks (I would love to have a full schedule). Thanks. – Pastor Dave
