"And what does the lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God (Micah 6:8)."

Roger DalyROGER (C. B.) DALY I’ve been a Pastor or interim Pastor for 41 years; for seven of them I was also a part-time family therapist. I have been married to Sandy for nearly 30 years. We are both ordained United Church of Christ pastors. Our life together continues to be a delight, and we are Roger (C.B.) Daly very happy living at Hallelujah Farm in Chesterfield, New Hampshire where we also host individual and group retreats.
Three of our four children are married, and we have seven grandchildren. My son Jonathan and daughter Heather and their families live north of Atlanta GA. Sandy’s son Chris and family live near Seattle and her daughter Melissa lives in Grand Junction, CO. Our family is one of the great blessings in our lives – we just wish they didn’t live so far away!
My formal education and the very formative personal relationships and experiences of my life have brought me to a “place” best described in the narrative below. It is my last (and second ever) “update for the Groton School Alumni news. It says most of what is important to say about myself.



 

 

 

 

"I have said before that I am a happy person. That declaration surprised me when I realized its truth about ten years ago. It's more true today. My work as an interim minister relating to transitional and distressed churches (though now part time) is gratifying and apparently effective. My life with Sandy is rich and full of delight. Our life together offering retreat ministry at Hallelujah Farm has grown and serves well the need and desire of groups, couples and individuals to pause in their busy and purposeful lives to rest and restore their particular energy, passion and creativity for life. We continue to celebrate the lives of our children and their children. All seventeen of us gather for "Family Camp" during the third week of July and celebrate a "whole family" gathering (of about 45) on its Saturday with our siblings and their children. This culminates in a unique three act, variously costumed drama featuring the youngest generation as actors and Sandy as (often befuddled) director/producer. Throughout the day, there are things seen, heard, tasted, smelled and/or felt that cause us to fall in love with one another all over again -- at least until the next time we see each other. The experience of Family Camp is an anchor for our lives. Hallelujah Farm is a welcoming place, and we welcome you -- friend, acquaintance, stranger -- to pause with us for renewing body, mind, heart, soul.  Sound lofty and ambitious? Nah. Come and enjoy!”
