It’s important (and also a valuable spiritual discipline) to regularly stop and rest from all your work. Even God rested after he created us. In light of this (and because most of the ReKnew staff is on vacation) we’re taking a short blogging sabbatical. This will be the last post until Monday, July 15th.
