Hi there and welcome to my blog. This blog was set up so that I could share my learnings during my sabbatical which will run from June 1-August 31, 2007. I am a United Church of Christ pastor who has served Mountain View United Church for the past five years. Mountain View United is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA), the United Church of Christ, and the United Methodist Church. At the end of my sabbatical, Mountain View will embark on a new journey as we will start an Emergent worship gathering on September 9, 2007. I hope you'll join me as - together - we explore various dimensions of the Emergent movement.
