Sabbath Retreat

Posted by on September 20, 2015

sab-rst  On Friday Joel will be leaving for a Sabbath Retreat so he can continue on his goal to reduce the stress and overall workload in his life.  You can read about when he last talked about this and his beard here:

Here is the explanation of what a Sabbath Retreat is:

Sabbath retreats are an opportunity for Covenant pastors, missionaries, and chaplains, offering the chance to revisit the practice of holy rest. Over the course of two-and-a-half days, participants will find the space to pause in the presence of God, moving through the Sabbath rhythms of relinquishing, receiving, and resting.

For me, I feel as though this re-commitment to a healthier me needs to start with God, reconnecting with Him in a new way and rededicating myself to the ritual of Holy Rest.  Please pray for me that this retreat is successful to this end and God works in a mighty way in my life.

Please also pray for Kim and the kids as I will be gone almost 6 days with all of the travel time needed for this retreat.  Thankfully, Kim’s mom Noritta and Aunt Donna will be here to help with the kids.  However, we have been going through an incredibly busy time since Ephraim was born so I feel like I am leaving her during a tough time.  I trust that God is leading this process and will care for her and the kids will I am gone, especially through the assistance of family.  Please pray!
