Rev. Kathleen Owens Sabbatical

Our church, the UUA and the Ministers’ Association all recognize the importance of ministers having a sabbatical, and Kathleen will be going on her sabbatical soon. Her Letter of Agreement stipulates that she accumulates one month for every year served and can take up to four months after every four years. Her last sabbatical was in 2012/13. After postponing a year, she’s now taking 4 months this year. She’ll be gone from Sept. 25 — Nov. 18 back on Nov. 20 through the holiday season and gone again from Jan. 2 — Feb. 28, returning on March 1. The theme of her sabbatical is Sacred Geography. Read September’s First Words for details about her travels.

  • Be Ready to Accept Happiness

    Be ready to accept happiness when it shows itself. If you are lucky enough to know happiness when you see it, trust it. Love and joy and peace and family are for us all, though we have none of us exactly earned them. Waste as little time as possible with incredulous self-abasement. Take your blissful moments as you find them.
