Hello Kingston Presbyterian Church! My name is Nicole Busacca, and I am your new intern for the summer. Although I am disappointed that I cannot be with you all in person, I am looking forward to finding ways to be useful and supportive to you during this unique and difficult season.
I just finished my first year of the Master of Divinity program at Princeton Seminary and am preparing for ordination in the PC(USA). My hope is to work in smaller churches with roots in their communities, so I am grateful for the opportunity to work with KPC and learn from you all.
I call Washington state home and am spending my summer here getting as much outdoor time in as I can. I grew up in the Seattle area and did my undergrad at Whitworth University in Spokane, where I studied Theology and Development Studies. In my free time I enjoy hiking, cooking, playing guitar, watching movies, and reading.
This summer presents new challenges to us all emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Each day brings fresh difficulties and feelings which we may feel unprepared to navigate. My hope above all else is to manifest to you that, no matter what you are feeling spiritually or emotionally, the Lord is present with you as you process the chaos that we are all living in. Some of you may be too overwhelmed and drained for anything more than simple grounding spiritual practices; some of you may be hungry to fill your time with growth and learning. Whatever you are experiencing, I would love to offer you the support and tools needed to get through these coming months.
Thank you for the privilege of being part of your lives during a particularly tender season. I pray and expect that God will comfort us with the Spirit’s intimate nearness, surprise us with moments of resurrection amid loss, and empower us to care for one another in new and creative ways. Peace to you all.
