It’s rather fitting, after my post about juggling books and how hectic my writing schedule has been, that my church’s study of spiritual disciplines this week is on Rest. STOP is the keyword. Learning to quiet ourselves and know God is the key lesson.
We don’t just work at one thing anymore. We drink coffee and drive cars. We drive cars and talk on the phone. We talk on the phone and shop in the cloud…and fix dinner…and watch the news. In the last twenty years, work is up 15 percent and leisure is down 30 percent, and things are only going to get worse. Yet statistics tell only a part of the story. They don’t account for multi-tasking, nor do they reflect leisure time per family unit. Mom works two jobs, and so do Dad and Sis. Junior is in kindergarten, and he no longer takes a nap after lunch or goes home in the afternoon, as I did. He is in school all day…
Isn’t the above the truth?! Pastor Mike Freeman reviewed the book on the Vineyard Boise BookCellar site, giving it a rating of 3 out of 3. Doesn’t come any better than that.
I may not be able to put too much resting into my days until these revisions are done, but I do plan to read 24/6 and plan ahead for some R&R.
Be still and know that I Am God.
Blessings on your day!
