We will kick off our visiting pastor schedule with Bill Calhoun, Retired Minister, Montview Presbyterian, who has, himself, experienced the renewal qualities of a pastoral sabbatical and who has provided valuable resources to the COTH  Sabbatical team in preparing for Dee’s summer of renewal.   

We look forward to two Sundays in July exploring “Godly Play” with Joelle Beller, a Fuller Preaching Professor and gifted speaker on this topic.   

While Dee is kayaking with seals and sea otters and then swimming with dolphins, we will explore “Descending into Our Spiritual Depths” with Rev. Les Avery, Retired, St. James Presbyterian.   

And finally, to commemorate Dee’s African adventure and her life-long dream to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, our congregation will celebrate “Ascending the Mountain of God” with Diane Prevary, Stated Clerk of her presbytery, New Covenant, Houston, Texas, and former GP and interim GP of other presbyteries.
