Pre sabbatical thoughts

Liz & I have a few goals for our sabbatical (which starts this weekend) one of which is to laugh a lot and not take ourselves too seriously.

I am prone to think too much rests on me. In one sense this is good, Bill Hybels has helped many to see the contribution good leadership can make to a local church. Romans 12:8 states that those whose gift is leadership should govern diligently.

But I also need to take a chill pill occasionally. Jesus was good fun to be around which is presumably why he got invited to parties! If I want to be more like him (and get invited to parties) I need to laugh a whole lot more, drink a little wine and rest in the faithfulness & willingness of God to fullfil his plans.
