Beyond the Howl of Coyotes: Reflections on a Good Sabbatical

Focusing his Louisville Institute sabbatical project around studying and praying the Psalms, William G. Carter of First Presbyterian Church, Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, looked to two quite different sites

Focusing his Louisville Institute sabbatical project around studying and praying the Psalms, William G. Carter of First Presbyterian Church, Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, looked to two quite different sites — both of which take the psalms seriously: a Benedictine monastery where the entire Psalter is chanted each week, and a Free Church congregation in Scotland where unaccompanied psalm singing is the only form of congregational music. He describes helpful information about the challenges of preparing to go on a sabbatical and of reentry.
