I love the rhythm of the academic life. We are finishing the season of work and entering the season of rest.

Andy Crouch recently said, We are made for work and rest, not for toil and leisure.

What a great reminder.

Friends, we have worked hard!  And…we get do good, important and meaningful work.

Matthew Litchfield added this to the conversation: “Sabbathless life ends up w/neither true work nor true rest, but w/frantic & ineffective activity punctuated by couch-potato lethargy.

I intend to rest this season. I hope you will too.

Enjoy your winter rest.
