Greetings. I am working with a professor at Ball State University and we are conducting a study called "Supporting Couple Relationships of Parents Raising Children with Autism" (IRB# 1022263). We hope to better understand how raising a child with autism can impact a couple's relationship/marriage. We hope to learn information that can be passed along to other parents who can gain insights and support that help protect their relationship and enhance their abilities as parents.

If you are married or in a committed relationship with the co-parent of a child living with you who has been diagnosed with a form of Autism Spectrum Disorder, I would like to hear about your insights and experiences in an anonymous, online survey. The survey includes a series of open-ended questions for you to type as much detail as you feel comfortable doing. It might take up to 30 minutes depending on how much information you choose to provide. A consent form that further explains the study will appear at this link (https://bsu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_cvaIoY54nqKBioR), followed by the survey itself.

I would appreciate it if you would forward this message to others who would qualify for and might be interested in participating in this study. Please email me at ([email protected]) if you have questions. Thank you for your consideration.

This study has been approved by the BSU Institutional Review Board.
I wanted to also post a picture of a Ready, Set, Go graduate. I really credit this school with the success he has had through school. Rylie is graduating this Saturday from Mountain View High School. Thank you!

First Presbyterian Church - Boise

Sad to hear, but glad none of the kids were there. 😕

Dear FPC Boise Family and Friends,

We all know that Tuesday evening got bumpy. Literally. The earthquake that rocked Idaho was not very kind to our building. This isn’t a big surprise – our building is really four different buildings tied together, it's old (the central building is 90 years old) and its made of brick. When you give that a good shake back and forth it was bound to show wear and tear… and it did. Some mild; some serious.

Cracks formed in all along the southern side of the building, in Lindsay Hall, the Garden Space, and the Chapel. Bricks are slightly bulging along some of those cracks in all three spaces. There was some ceiling damage in the conference room, and we have not yet ascertained what damage has occurred on the roof, particularly where all the HVAC units are bolted into the roof. We also have a call into two structural engineers to assess stress on that whole south wall and to assess the security of all the roofing reinforcements in the attic spaces as per the recommendation of our roofing expert from Illinois who was recently out here as a consultant to look at long-term maintenance of our roofing system across all 5 separate roofing sections of our building. How providential that we had just started this process, so we are ahead of the game when it comes to this new challenge.

I leave the last damage for the final report because it’s the most imminently serious: the chimney. The oldest part of our building (1927-29 Education Building) has a chimney that services the old boiler (now back-up heater to our geothermal and heat-pumps) and two no longer existing fireplaces. That chimney “threw” a brick which landed in the playground used by the YMCA preschool, after it punctured a hole in the metal roofing above part of that playground. This is clearly a critical issue. That playground is not safe. We have already had two masons out to give bids on rebuilding the chimney, which is not structurally sound. There is no option to wait on that repair – fortunately, the building is closed, and the preschool isn’t operating.

Our Facilities Committee, and recently formed Roofing Task Force, has already been at work to adjust to this new challenge. We have already had initial contact with our insurance company. The challenge here is that this is a project of huge scope and there are many steps: to assess the damage, the process to fix it (the right way), the cost, and how it is funded. We are just beginning these conversations and I cannot tell you more now about that…except that we will figure out all of that together and keep you informed along the way.

This is not the project I wanted to tackle right now. I wanted to go on sabbatical. I wanted to take a break from major construction. I wanted to stop needing to fund “extra” things. But it isn’t about what I wanted. This is the challenge that has been laid before us, and we will cross through it. We will rise above it. How do I know that? Because you all have proved to me time and again over the last few years how resolved you are to be a generous and committed community of faith who is possessed of vision, passion, and good news – sprinkled throughout with steadfast faith in the providence of God.

Our building may have rocked... and maybe rattled. But we are standing on solid ground. I take great hope and assurance that we will figure this out, and we will do it the right way so that the generation to come after us is grateful for the model of quality stewardship we handed on to them.

Grace and Peace,

Andrew Kukla and the Session of FPC Boise
