Raising the Dust

‘how-to’ equip deacons to serve the church

By Gregg Allison and Ryan Welsh


Are you tired and worn out from ministry? Isn’t Jesus’ burden supposed to be light?

In the pressure-producing machine of our chaotic world, Jesus’ words of rest don’t often touch our lives. As ministry leaders, we know a lot about biblical rest, yet we don’t often experience it. The ancient practice of sabbath provides ample wisdom on how to enter into rest in Christ. Sabbaticals is a guide showing us how to implement Sabbath principles into a sabbatical as well as into the ebb and flow of our entire lives.
