One of the most important things I’ve learned about myself over the years is that I can tend to overextend myself. I’m a doer, and I tend to run at a fast pace. So, learning the disciplines of slowing down and practicing Sabbath rest are habits I’ve had to learn. Each August our family chooses to take a decisive break to relax, reconnect, refuel, and refocus. We relax by getting out in nature and decompressing. We reconnect as a family, investing in one another and our extended family. We refuel through spiritual practices and reading. And we refocus through study and planning for the year ahead. So, we’ll be away for a few weeks for those purposes. And the good news is we have an exciting lineup of guest preachers that you won’t want to miss!
- Pastor Josue Reyes, August 13
- Rev. Stephen Farish, August 20
- Dr. Erwin Lutzer, August 27
- Pastor Larry McCarthy, September 3
Let’s be praying for each of these speakers, that God would speak to us through them. And please be praying for our family as we relax, reconnect, refuel, and refocus.
Remember, you are loved, more than you know!
