The Gift of Rest!
Yesterday, I filled out a survey for a college friend who is studying to be a youth minister. One of the questions was:
Thing - Someone - Ministry
What is the one thing you would tell someone who is just getting into vocational ministry?
Learn - Practice - Sabbath - Silence - Time
Learn to practice Sabbath and Silence. Take time for weekly refreshment and days of rest. Don’t fill your only day off with laundry and errands. Take a day or at least a half day to do something that brings life to your soul. Get outside, take a nap, do some art and TURN OFF THE PHONE! The practice of silence and sabbath, along with creativity will help you maintain your soul and joy for the work.
That made me think of the best gift I could give all of us for Christmas is the Gift of Rest!
Breathe - Nap - Midst - Days - Christmas
We all need it! We need to pause, breathe and even take a nap. In the midst of these busy few days before Christmas, let’s receive the gift of rest from Jesus. And we all need to remember that Christmas isn’t just one day! There are 12 days of Christmas and these include Christmas Day and go to January 5th. Then we celebrate Epiphany on January 6. So whatever you don’t get done, or if there are things you wish you could do...
