Lots of helpful stuff and I know it will be central in planning my sabbatical. I wish there was more on handling anxiety in the congregation - passing out index cards to brainstorm "dream vacations" with the board didn't seem quite right. But the appendix is great and guess what? There really aren't any other books out there on the subject, so this is pretty much it. But it's Alban, so it's solid, and will be easy to ask my planning team to read with me.
