A period of rest

This summer will be a time of great transition for me personally. I never took a blogging break in Lent, as I often do.

For at least the rest of May, and perhaps longer, I’m going to sign off from blogging to better focus my spiritual and mental energies in other places.

I will miss writing and interacting with you during this time.

Grace and peace.
