Sabbath is a time of rest, reflection, and can be translated as “making holy”. This summer I took a one month period of “sabbatical”. (See the same root word there?) I return rested, and excited to share with you in ministry. I plan to share with you a few of my own experiences of disconnecting in order to better connect. This counter-intuitive thought is part of the gift of a sabbath time. And whether it is a day, a week, a month or even a moment finding a time to experience sabbath does not only provide rest, but it enriches your activities that come before and after the sabbath.
