Rev Tim’s latest entry to The Vicar’s Blog talks about his plans for a sabbatical early next year …

Why a sabbatical?

I was going to post a blog about rest last week, but I ran out of time…

We’ve been looking at the whole theme of rest in our GIFT groups as we’ve been exploring Hebrews 3 and 4. We don’t often talk about the theme of rest in our churches, but it’s a term that everyone is familiar with, and something we all need! This shouldn’t surprise us because God built rest into the creation process, and it should be as important to us as work and sleep and eating. I guess however that we tend to feel rest is something a bit negative, it’s about doing nothing, when in our busy, world we should constantly be doing something. But that isn’t how the writer to the Hebrews talks about rest. For him rest is a product of a right relationship with God, and ultimately this rest points forward to the time when we will be at rest with God forever.
