To retreat

Dallas Wiilard writes, “if you don’t come apart for a while, you will come apart after a while.”

This next week is a wonderful opportunity for coming apart from the normal hectic pace of life, to change not only the focus but also the pace. I am desperately looking forward to it.

Yesterday was mostly travel but also connecting with a group of men, some of whom i know, but in creating a community, we begin to deepen our trust with each other.

I think about how Christ came in to his community building friendships and credibility with men and women, how he challenged their perceptions and beliefs, how he challenged their faith in God and assured them of His love. This week will be similar and, i believe that Jesus will be doing the same with us.

I am grateful for Wendy’s support and encouragement daily, but especially for opportunities like this.
