Projects 'R Us

I'm in the middle of three major projects:

  • Technology Project - for our current campus and first launch site
  • Branding Project - logo development, website, print media development
  • Film Short - for our upcoming campaign

These three projects have been incredibly exciting and awesome to work on, but they have also consumed a great deal of time and energy. My wife can sense those times when I seem to be running on empty after a long day. When I came home the other night she handed me a piece of paper and told me to keep it and read when necessary. Here's what it said:

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me-watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly.”
Matthew 11:28-30 (Msg)

That sounds like some pretty incredible advice!! Many of you have heard that passage before, but I encourage you to find comfort with the words of Jesus when you find yourself tired at the end of the day, worn out from a stressful situation or looking for that freedom that has eluded you for so long!
