Hi, [subscriber:firstname | default:Subscriber],


Happy Independence Day to my friends in the United States! One of the most important spiritual practices is that of Sabbath Rest. This month I plan to take three weeks completely unplugged from social media and from work at the church. So, if you follow me on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, or my daily posts, things will be quiet for most of the month. I hope you can find a way to take a digital fast and re-create in God's presence.

Enjoy these selections to help you grow deeper in the love of God, through Jesus Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit, for the sake of the world.

Peace.
Steve
