As much as I love what I do, sometimes I just need a break. I think we all need time for rest and renewal from the day-to-day busyness of life. And so, this coming week, my family and I will be heading to Missouri for some time away. We will spend time in the water and sun. We will head out on a boat and wear lots of sunscreen. And most of all, I hope we have fun as a family. Our trip to Missouri is something we always look forward to.
Just as a reminder, if any pastoral emergencies come up in my absence, don’t hesitate to contact a council member or leave a message at the church. We have pastoral care coverage while I am away.
Finally, I hope you’re able to find time for rest and renewal this summer as well. God knows how important rest is. It is why we have the Sabbath. So if anyone questions a little down time, you tell them, “God said so!”
Be well my brothers and sisters,
