Retired Schuyler Rhodes is not sitting around eating Bonbons
Editor's Note: Among the most meaningful moments of each Annual Conference is the honoring of those who are retiring from a career of active ministry. They may be retiring from their career, but few ever retire from service in mission. I'd like to extend an invitation to all of our retired ministry family to keep in touch. Let us know what you're up to!  Email me, selbye@calnevumc.org, and let's get the word out on what retirement is looking like for you.

Teacher. Author. Retreat leader. Inspirational speaker.  These are just a few of the hats that our now retired Schuyler Rhodes is wearing these days.

The pandemic might have been difficult for an outgoing people person like Schuyler, yet he used the lockdown time to dig deep into his creativity and begin some new projects.  Among them a new CD of music, a novel in progress.  He has also been teaching, leading retreats and working with leadership teams to maximize their effectiveness.  

If you are headed to Sacramento for Annual Conference 2022, you might just run into Schuyler. Lisa Quoresimo, PhD Performance Studies and Schuyler's better half, is workshopping a new play with UC Davis entitled "Death and Harry Houdini", so the couple has been spending time in the Sacramento area. 

Over coffee, Schuyler shared that he and Lisa have moved across the country for his pastoral call with the UMC, and now it is Lisa's time to really explore her gifts.

Lisa is Assistant Professor of Musical Theatre at Southern Utah University. She is an internationally produced composer and playwright, and an active director and performer. Her work has been seen at Berkeley Repertory Theatre (West Coast Premiere of An Octoroon), Shotgun Players, and the Brava Theatre, and she served as Artistic Director of the Kairos Theatre in New York City for many years.
