A Great Room with a View

That’s from New Mexico to Minnesota. For as long as I’ve been on the district staff of the UUA, I’ve met once a year (usually in February or March) with my colleagues in the “Mid-America District Staff” group at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico for a working retreat. And every year I’m thrilled by the beauty of the landscape. This photo is an actually picture of what the view from my room looked like this weekend. Of course, we come for more than the scenery. The staff of Prairie Star, Central Midwest, and Heartland districts (the current MADS configuration) has come up with several new initiatives that we’re all pretty excited about. I’ll share more of them with you as we iron out the details. For now, I’ve got to catch a flight from ABQ to MSP and get back home to see the family.
