I officially go on a 3.5 month sabbatical tmrw. As part of the sabbatical I’ll be off of social media (starting tmrw) for the next few months. Gonna be tough but I think this break will help me to be more present to God, my family & myself. (Lord, please bring KD to the Knicks!)

Preached on a theology of sabbaticals today. Referenced Jesus’ words in John 16:7 (it is good for you that I go away). I offered these 4 truths about sabbaticals:

We had our Annual Meeting today. We received 60 new members (from at least 20 countries) who are responding to the call to be rooted in our community. And the Elders sent our family off with a sabbatical blessing. Immensely grateful for our church family.

Thanks Ben. I spend time with the monks at St. Joseph’s Abbey (Trappists) in Boston annually. Always a gift.

Pentecost is coming. I love that on the 1st Pentecost Sunday, it is Peter who preaches. This same Peter had just denied Jesus a bit earlier. The Holy Spirit is not a reward for good behavior & unwavering faith. The Holy Spirit is a gift to those who turn to Jesus & wait on him.

A Trappist monk I met with last June said four things that deeply encouraged me: 1) Waking up to pray at 3am gets pretty old sometimes. 2) I sometimes wonder if I believe in God. 3) I have experienced a depth of God’s love that’s hard to explain. 4) Don’t complicate prayer.

Two of the most troubling problems within American evangelicalism is conflating the gospel with politics and compartmentalizing the gospel from politics.

Many of our limits are gifts to welcome, not obstacles to overcome. We were not created to transcend every limit, but to allow our limits to bring us to God, connect us more deeply to each other, and purify our hearts from ego-driven desires.

It comes across like that to you. That’s cool. I’m not going to engage you on whether I’m arguing or not, though. Peace, brother.

if you're seeing my tweet as me "arguing" I don't know what to say.
