I am on vacation…
…but not really. As Christians we are never really on vacation, but as for pastoral duties I am on vacation…
…well…not really. I went down to my favorite coffee shop to enjoy some time away from my cell phone and visited with a group of ladies (one of which is from Salem). One of the ladies in that group is recovering from back surgery and is still in some pain. I guess some pastoral care was taking place.
After that group left I made my way over to another group of ladies to say "Hi". They had just finished a Bible study at their church. They noticed a saying on my shirt that had a Bible verse attached to it and wanted to know what it meant. I couldn’t remember so one lady pulled out a Bible and I looked up the verse. I guess a mini bible study took place.
On vacation? I guess that is a very subjective word because Christians should never be on "vacation".
And what will tomorrow hold for me…on my "busy" vacation? I will be looking forward to spending some more "vacation" time down at the coffee shop.
Take care and God bless!
