Summer

SunTaking more of a break this summer.  I want to eke out a healthier summer this year.

My paystub  indicates six weeks of personal time due to be taken from the office. There is a significant to-do list of office writing. There are at least two work trips this summer. And, this is not a “poor me” post. It’s all good, really.

Between now and Labor Day, I’m gonna let go of the conceit of posting everyday. Also, letting go of the annual tour of the State of Youth Ministry, which we have traveled together for the previous three summers,  but not this year… ‘Cause (in the words of Ms. Sheryl Crow)

I’m gonna soak up the sun. I’m gonna tell everyone to lighten up. (I’m gonna tell ’em that.) I’ve got no one to blame. For every time I feel lame, I’m looking up. I’m gonna soak up the sun.

That’s my new summer resolution. <image source>

Scott recently married the lovely Anne and together they have five adult young people and also grandparent three delightful kids (so, maybe he is just plain old!) Scott presently serves at Saint John the Evangelist in Columbia, MD as the director of youth and young adult ministry.

He has previously served on the parish, regional, diocesan, and national levels as well as having taught within a catholic high school. He is one of the founders of RebuildMyChurch and has returned to posting regularly (keeping regular is important to old guys) at ProjectYM.
