Soul Sabbath

What a week for Leadership Transformations! We’re celebrating our 7th Ministry Anniversary with several exciting gatherings with our team and lots of friends of our ministry…a Leadership Enrichment Event with Mark Buchanan focusing on our “Spiritual Rhythms” and the seasons of our soul; a Soul Care Mini Retreat focusing on “Discovering the Rest of God” with our friends at Grace Chapel; and a Celebration Reception for our donors and friends – wow, God has been so good to us, and we give HIM all the glory, honor and praise!
Earlier this week I spent a day on “Soul Sabbath” with some of our Gordon-Conwell seminary students. A day-long retreat where we enjoy silence and solitude in community. A great way to practice listening to God, His Word, His creation, His gifts of love and life. It’s awesome how bonded a community of relative strangers can become in shared silence and solitude. I’m amazed each and every time!
“Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; He is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge,” Psalm 62: 5-8.
