retreat2 Times away, when possible, are an important part of a long-term, vibrant, pastoral ministry. Jesus himself modeled getting away to spend time with the Father.  And I am so grateful that the elders and church family at Calvary have graciously allowed me such times away.

Today begins a pastoral retreat/study break at Trout Lake camp's Shalom House until Thursday. It will be four days of quiet study and time with Jesus. I would love your prayers for me, and for the other pastors who are here.

I'll be offline for most of the week.

Grace and Peace to you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
