Hi Mary, and welcome! I am very interested in the fairness ordinance, as that gives a good flavor for the character of your community. And, I’m sorry to hear that you are unofficial and unpaid in the various pastoral duties at your congregation. I hope the congregation appreciates the quality of service they are receiving from you! I enjoy traveling too, although I don’t do it nearly as often as you. I am, however, planning a trip to Costa Rica this fall, and am very busy trying to learn some Spanish so I can communicate while there!
I look forward to our discussions.
