Our Rector the Rev. Dr. Brent Was is on vacation and he arranged for a real treat for long time members of St. Francis by the Sea in Blue Hill, Maine. A real blast from the past as our preacher and celebrant this Sunday morning was the Rev. Allan Sandlin. Our thanks for coming back again as Allan was the first Rector of St. Francis, serving from 1994-99. Before retiring from full-time parish ministry this past October, he served congregations in Frankfurt and Munich, Germany as well as several in the Diocese of Atlanta. Allan and his wife, Gretchen Nagy, are now part-time residents of Blue Hill, occasionally visited by their son, Thomas and his wife, Alex and daughter, Lizzy, who was born in Blue Hill.
