Tuesday Topics: Talk Amongst Yourselves

Yesterday, my so called "day off" was a flurry of activity - way too busy. From seeing an attorney in the morning regarding my illness and whether I ought to pursue a law suit (I don't want too, but it seems I do have a case of dentist neglect which made the condition worse). Then a lunch meeting, then a Dr. appt with my son, then a long phone interview with the search committee for a potential new call. Geez. so today, while not my day off, will be much more relaxing. I only have to pay bills on line, write a sermon, organize my thoughts for the annual meeting on Sun. exercise, maybe go to dog park (cold and snowy, so not muddy). And then another Dr. appt with my son (chiropractor, TMJ and headaches)....

Here's the topic:

When your day off isn't a day off, do you take another one that same week?

How do you find the space and time for rest and renewal when really busy?

Can one find sabbath time in just a few minutes or hours of a day? Does it "count" to zone out on the sofa with a cup of coffee and a purring kitten?
