Rest and retreat

Throughout my 20's my old man kept telling me I need to learn to rest. I thought he was bonkers. Why bother resting when you don't have to?

These days are different. Maybe it happens when we hit our mid-30's? I've had to start learning.

Today I head to some mountains down south on a pastor's retreat.

I've got no idea what it'll be like. I hope to return Friday.
Have a great week.

  1. your dad was right Dave ! We tend to live unexamined lives in this fast paced world. Although immersion in God's word and serving others is an effective mitigation, there is little to beat a time of rest and reflection, where the real issues of our lives often confront us and we turn to Him in prayer....put the action list aside for awhile.
