    Dear familia:

    It was so good to see many of you in Raleigh last month. We had a great time challenging one another to engage in developing flourishing neighborhoods throughout our nation and world. By all accounts, the conference was inspiring and challenging for all who attended. I invite you to put it on your calendar to join us in Memphis next year.

    I want to take this time to inform those of you who did not attend the conference that I am taking a six-month sabbatical, which began Oct. 9.
