Summer Shifts

ShiftSummer has always been one of my favorite seasons of the year.  It is also a time when many people temporarily shift their normal routine.  I will be making shifts in several areas for the summer, including:

Blogging

I have published one blog post a day for the last 10 months, and a total of 1,450 since launching this blog in 2009.  This will be my last daily post for the summer.  I will continue to post on occasion rather than taking a month off as I did last year (a much needed break after publishing a post a day for 1,000 days).

Preaching

Later this month I will finish my role as Interim Senior Minister at United Church (Marco Island, FL).  During this 10 month interim I will preach at total of 36 sermons on Sunday mornings.  In July I will worship for a few weeks at Naples UCC (my home church where I have been on staff since 2011) before returning to the pulpit for a few weeks in July and a few in August at Fort Myers Congregational UCC.

Teaching

Normally this is an area without change, since I teach at a University that has an academic year comprised of three trimesters with a student body that doesn’t depart for a summer break.  This summer, however, I am taking on a new role in order to help introduce our faculty to Quality Matters.

So What?

Summer has arrived.  Life commitments are shifting.

  • What are you “giving up” for the summer?
  • What are you adding to your schedule for the summer?
  • What do you hope to learn this summer?
