revlaurawittman:I can't believe it but my workaholic husband is taking 8 weeks off!!!! nbsp;I'm pretty sure we're going to go and vacation somewhere during that time. nbsp;We are covered really well by the Methodist Book of Discipline though... all clergy are guaranteed at least that amount of time off if you are a full time Elder. nbsp;Woohoo!

Seriously? Ugh... That is wow! Im going to challenge the September ladies to indulge me in saying their SO gets more time off than this! And mean in! Rev you are the prize holder ATM!
It is awesome! It's only due to the increase in young clergy over the past few years. The church is trying to do more to get more of us in here, and that includes offering support for the younger pastors. It's definitely nice to have! You can take 8 weeks paid, and an extra month unpaid, unless you save all of your time off and then you can take 12 weeks paid. But of course, that's only for ordained elders.
I'm pretty excited for both of us to have some time off together. Of course there is a sense in which we are both always "on call" because of emergency situations and funerals, but usually ministers in the area try to cover for each other if something comes up while one is on leave.
csh96:DH has not done a good job looking into this at work. nbsp;He is "fairly sure" that he will get a week or 2. nbsp;Ugh! nbsp;Just get something off the checklist for once dear!
DH can't really take too much off since he is a dentist and has patients, and a fcew days a week he is the only one at the office (they have two offices). Last time it works out that we were at the hospital on days that FIL (also a dentist) is in the office.He had to cancel the other day.
But he had to go back to work right when we came home. My mom just stayed for a week or two.
We'll see what happens this time.
