I serve (by the mercy of God) as the pastor for an amazing church family. Once every five years, they grant a three month sabbatical. For this first one of my pastorate, the elders felt it would be best to split it over two years: six weeks last year, and six weeks this year. That six weeks started on Monday.
sab·bat·i·cal. (noun) a period of leave granted for study or travel.
My goals are simple: family, rest, play, read, and write. And, spend a great deal of time in prayer and the Bible.
I'd love your prayers for us as we break from the routine and restore, to return prepared for a new season of ministry.
Grace and Peace,
