The Sabbatical Fund Committee of the Diocese of New Jersey presents a Program on Sabbaticals on Saturday, February 2 from 9:30 am to 12 Noon at Trinity Cathedral.  There will be no charge, but pre-registration is requested.  Coffee and light refreshments, but no lunch, will be available.  We encourage any clergy who have never been on sabbatical before to come, whether or not you think it might be “practical” for you at this time.  We also encourage clergy to bring at least two lay members of your congregation or ministry venue/support group.  Please save the date or register online. We will be sharing information about the sabbatical experience, both as it impacts clergy and congregations, based on experienced clergy and lay leaders, “how to” advice for dreaming/preparing, including regarding Lily Grant applications, and an opportunity to speak informally both with members of our Committee and with others.  The objective is to “educate, empower and provide resources for clergy and congregations regarding the value of sabbaticals and how to prepare for one.” Register online

Sweet Georgia Brown: Impact, Courage, Sacrifice and Will A DOCUMENTARY shown by Mr. Lawrence Walker This documentary focuses on black women enlisting in the WAAC (Women's Army Auxiliary Corps) which soon converted to the WAC (Women's Army Corps), the Navy WAVES (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service), and the Coast Guard SPARS. Charity Adams Earley, commander of 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion in World War II, summarized the history of women in the military when she wrote in 1989: “The future of women in the military seems assured…. What may be lost in time is the story of how it happened. The barriers of sex and race were, and sometimes still are, very difficult to overcome, the second even more than the first. During World War II women in the service were often subject to ridicule and disrespect even as they performed satisfactorily…. Each year the number of people who shared the stress of these accomplishments lessens. In another generation young black women who join the military will have scant record of their predecessors who fought on the two fronts of discrimination segregation and reluctant acceptance by males.” The documentary focuses on black women enlisting in the WAAC (Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps) which soon converted to the WAC (Women’s Army Corps), the Navy WAVES (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service), and the Coast Guard SPARS. Mr. Walker’s recently published book of the same title is available at Amazon.com. DIRECTED AND PRODUCED BY SOMERSET RESIDENT, LAWRENCE E. WALKER, WHO WILL BE PRESENT AND FACILITATE A DISCUSSION FOLLOWING THE 1-HR. VIEWING. DATE: Saturday, February 2, 2019 PLACE: St. Barnabas Episcopal Church 142 Sand Hill Rd., Monmouth Junction (732) 297-4607 TIME: 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm COST: Free. Donations welcomed.
