Sabbatical Reflections

I am on day 30 of a 48 day sabbatical.

What is a sabbatical? It’s a time for rest, reflection and recharging. What do you do on a sabbatical? Rest, reflect and re-charge primarily. J
It’s definitely not a vacation, even though I kicked off my sabbatical on the heals on my yearly vacation. So really the first 20 days were my family vacation, not sabbatical, but it just worked to do it all at the same time. The rest, reflect and re-charge is more the end goal… it’s what I am doing to accomplish those goals, i.e. Reading (7 books already) attending other churches (which I never get to do) and attending a church leadership workshop to help me be a better pastor and leader. So it’s not like I am sitting poolside or playing Angry Birds. Ha ha! I’m not much for games anyway; don’t even have a single game on my iPhone. It’s not really even time off, but rather time away to focus on filling up those places I’ve emptied out.
