Arvid's Sabbatical Part 2

Yesterday, I began the second half of my 5 month sabbatical, which will be from January 15 to April 1.  As most of you know the first 2 1/2 months of my sabbatical were spent in Mexico, traveling and studying Spanish.   Having decided to split the sabbatical, I returned to my regular duties on December 1, checking in with the life of the congregation before beginning part 2 of the sabbatical.

What do I plan to do in Part 2?  Mostly writing.  I am turning a sermon series I did a few years ago on the major theological paths within Unitarian Universalism into a book, to be published on line. Many people asked for such a book at the time. My hope is that each chapter will describe the paths in such a way that their major advocates and responsible critcs will both recognize their postions.  The book will end with a chapter on what in common to UUs of all paths. 

As I complete a portion of the work, I intend to post it on this blog, so stay tuned. 

Should there be time, I will begin to edit my series on Gandhi's Seven Social Sins.  The sabbatical will also include a pilgrimage in March to our Partner Churches in the Philippines.
