I would like to thank the parish of St. Bartholomew’s for funding a sabbatical in January 2008 to celebrate my 30th anniversary of ordination. Though the Sabbatical year occurs every seventh year, this was my very first sabbatical. I finally had gotten to a place where I was ready and eager to travel to the land of Jesus’ life and ministry, a place I had only dreamed of visiting. It was the death of so many beloved parishioners over 24 years – 165 that I had buried in that span of time – that finally motivated me to go. I needed to get away and cease my labors.
