Labor Day is upon us, which means the unofficial end of summer—the program year is truly upon us!
Though most preachers won’t get to enjoy a long, three-day weekend for Labor Day because they’ll work this Sunday, I hope many will still be able to enjoy downtime on Monday.
You not only deserve but need to rest from your considerable labors—so you can get geared up for the many labors about to begin.
To help you rest from your effort, whether on Labor Day or any day you need respite, I designed a free, at-home retreat: “Rest from Your Labors.”
There are exercises and reflections designed for your schedule, whether you have one hour, three, or six.
You’ll begin with quiet time in Lectio Divina.
You’ll move on to remember and give thanks for God’s labors for you, and your labors for others—and even take in others’ gratitude for you.
You constantly work hard serving others. It’s time to put your feet up and be served.
Rest from your labors and be renewed so you can serve once again.
