Finders Keepers: a Sabbatical Reflection

Pastor Mike Mather had the rare privilege of receiving two sabbatical grants from the Lilly Endowment. The first, in 2000, was a six-month break that allowed him to take his wife and two sons to India and Arizona. The second, in 2009, allowed the family to spend two months in South Africa. In both instances this committed urban ministry pastor sought insight and perspective on his persistent struggle to uncover the hidden miracles, hope, and opportunity in his home church and community. In his sabbatical reflection, Finders Keepers, Mather discloses the unique experiences he had in looking for insight in “unlooked for” places and finding the unexpected. Through these encounters he became a keeper of the vision he learned from front-line spiritual mentors.
