WOW, it’s difficult to believe it’s LABOR DAY! September is here already, summer is officially over. Normally this weekend is my Annual TEAM SENKARIK Collector Event as well as the beginning of Football Season! But this year has been unusual to say the least, one for the history books. We’ve all had to take on tasks that we never dreamed of. I know I certainly have. If you’re a regular follower of my blog you’ve most likely noticed I’ve not been doing quite as many paintings as usual. That’s because a lot of my time has been taken up in an entirely unexpected way.

I’m the Leader of the WELCOME HOME TEAM at my Church, Shepherd of the Hills. That’s what we decided to call the Team that’s responsible for establishing and implementing all of the Safety Protocols for re-opening our Church for Worship. WELCOME HOME TEAM seemed much friendlier than SAFETY PROTOCOL ENFORCERS or COVID COPS!

Fortunately God has surrounded me with a wonderful team of people who have been amazing. It all absolutely, could not have done without them. We are responsible for setting all the safely guidelines following CDC, National, State and Local regulations. Everything from socially distanced seating, flow patterns of worshipers coming in and out of Church to sanitizing the Worship Center, bathrooms and public areas. Recruiting, training and working with volunteers at every service to make sure all are safe. We even have a Communion Service in our Parking Lot, I get to help direct our in-car worshipers! 

I thought you’d like to watch this podcast interview with my Pastor, Rev. Dr. Chris Kennedy. He’s been doing a series interviewing members of our Church. He thought our Shepherd Family would like to know what life as an artist looks like and learn about Jack’s and my story. ENJOY!

Thank you so much for being part of my TEAM SENKARIK FAMILY! You are a blessing in my life. Have a wonderful Labor Day and please stay safe! With Big Hugs,
