It has been five months since I wrote a column for this space. During that time, my family and I have been living in the United Kingdom, while I have been on sabbatical and finishing up my doctoral studies. There is so much to talk about from that time and the experiences we have had – which I’ve started doing in video updates from the last several weeks here, as well as worship service for July 2.
Rather than take up this column talking about what I have been up to, though, I want to extend an invitation: sabbaticals are an opportunity to renew the joint ministry between a religious professional and the congregation, so part of what I would like to do this summer is to meet with as many members of the Unitarian Church of Lincoln as possible, to hear what you have been up to this spring, and what your hopes (and worries) for the future of this community are.
To start, I’ve set aside three times when I’ll be roaming the coffee houses of Lincoln, ready and eager for drop in conversations:
Please go to https://calendly.com/revsinclair to set up a meeting time with me. I cannot wait to see you, and start the next chapter of our ministry together in Lincoln.
Rev. Oscar Sinclair serves as the Settled Minister for The Unitarian Church of Lincoln, Nebraska.
