I’m attempting something I haven’t been able to accomplish in years.
I’m taking a break from the blog. And twitter. And email (as much as possible). For two weeks.
My reasons are twofold: First, because I will be on study leave for the next two weeks working on a book about busyness. And second, because my life is too busy.
A couple months ago I wrote about “blogging for a sustainable future.” This two week break is a big part of that sustainable future. I have one more post lined up for tomorrow and a couple MMH’s in the queue. Jason Helopoulos, my friend and now one of the pastors at University Reformed Church, will be filling in the rest of the gaps. Lord willing I’ll be back with a new post two weeks from today.
We need rhythms in life. We need to press and push, but also rest and retreat. I’ve done some reading and thinking already, but there is more I need to learn about God’s wisdom, my weaknesses, and why everyone reading this blog feels overwhelmed. I’m not sure of everything I’ll discover about the Bible and busyness, but I know it will be good for me, even if it hurts a little.
