David Drake will be on sabbatical from August first through the beginning of Advent. His actual time away from Resurrection will begin July first, with a month of non-sabbatical summer travel.)
“What will David and his family be doing while he is on sabbatical?”
During the month of July the Drake family will be vacationing together, spending quality time together, growing together, playing together, and strengthening bonds. After the period of their vacation, David will leave for Colorado and his annual Anglican Leadership Initiative trip, which is a leadership training program for Bishops which David has helped to design and lead.
His actual sabbatical begins August 1, and during that time he will tackle the list of ‘Rs’ posted in the May 12 entry describing the goals of his sabbatical. (Scroll down for this list.) This will involve study, reflection, some travel, and time alone as well as meeting with mentors and spiritual directors. During his times away there will be opportunities for all of us to offer practical assistance to Kristin and the girls—more about that later. The sabbatical team is working with Kristin to come up with a list of ways we can serve her, and you can expect to see a sign up sheet in the weeks to come.
The Sabbatical Committee, with members Steve Dassoulas (Chair), Patrick Cunningham, Fayne Farrar, Tim Foster, Meg Lawrence, Jeff Merwin, Catie Mickletz, Molly O'Donovan, and Dedi Whitaker represent a diverse group from our congregation, staff, and Vestry. This team will be providing information and updates about the Sabbatical here.
