A change is gonnna come....

So when you think about the person sitting typing this, do you wonder "who is the author"? Then you see Sam Cooke Lyrics posted and the reader has to think about who could pull up Sam Cooke.
Summer is here and people will soon be off with vacation, BBQ, weekends with friends, and just taking lazy weekends with family.  Now, as the writer of this Blog I am not going to say you're doing anything wrong, but while you are gone SOME PRETTY BIG CHANGES ARE UPON US!

You all know that Donna Huxtable has stepped down as treasurer and another member Linda Rozinski has taken the reins there.

Did you know however that our Office Administrator, Kathleen Dombkoski, is moving to Chicago with her family?

Kathleen has been a huge blessing to UDLC in the time she has been here.  She has helped not only get the office organized, plan multiple large projects and create all of the marketing materials, flyers, and postcards for more things than we can list.  Kathleen streamlined "This Week" to save paper each week.

Some things that Kathleen did that you may not know, but benefit from all the time:
* Original reworking of
* Help coordinating the visit of the "Tanzania 3"
* Help getting "Constant Contact" emails to congregation
* Making sure the website is constantly updated
* The most recent UDLC.ORG reworking and upgrade in November 2011
* Helping to get Upper Dublin's computers and network update done.

This change is coming and while it is sad for many of us and we will miss Kathleen, Mark, and the girls, we wish them all the best.

So in all the change with Donna Huxtable moving closer to her daughter, Linda Rozinski joining the staff, Pastor Keith joining us, and Kathleen Dombkoski moving on....

As Sam Cooke sings:

There were times when I thought I couldn't last for long
But now I think I'm able to carry on
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gone come, oh yes it will



As Lutherans, there is a stereotype that we don’t like change, but funny thing is UDLC seems to take on “Change” and embrace it.
