As of today I’m officially on sabbatical for the next three months. It’s a time to be renewed and re-energized, but not exactly a vacation. I’ll be doing a little traveling: going to two conference type things (Festival of Homiletics and Wild Good Festival), doing a little sight-seeing, and seeing some friends. Other than that I want to rest, connect a little deeper with Spirit, do some reading and writing, and spend some time reflecting on life. Two other projects: I need to finish up final edits on my book that should be out fairly soon and I need to find a new place to live. That should all be plenty to keep me occupied. Right now, I’m thinking I’ll try to blog fairly regularly as a way of reflection, but who knows?
