The main thing I wanted to do with this post is simply to celebrate. I did it! I took a sabbatical. It wasn’t perfectly executed, and it didn’t involve elaborate planning or expensive travel to exotic locations. It was simply a restful, relaxing, enjoyable, reflective, reading, and slow-paced life parenthesis.
This is the first in a series of posts on COVID, culture, dialogue, hope and learning gentleness. May it lead to gracious interaction, encouraging perspective and growing trust in a God who is in control and loves you.
