Taking a Sabbatical

A long time ago I read a blog post where one pastor praised another pastor for taking an eight month sabbatical.  Both pastors were people you would recognize and "the man" at their respective churches.

I couldn't help but thinking:  Would he have need a sabbatical if he had taken a weekly Sabbath for the past 20-30 years?  I've never been a pastor and I won't say that a sabbatical is not needed because I don't know anyone's specific life context.

But how many pastors/ministry leaders actually take a Sabbath rest one day of the week?

If you are a pastor or a ministry leader, when's the last time you actually had a day of rest?

Just some thoughts from awhile ago that needed to come out.  I've blogged previously about the Sabbath.  Find those posts here.
