In this episode, hosts Rev. Micah Glenn and Dr. Ben Haupt talk through the importance of rest, vacation and time with family as church workers. Ben and Micah will be taking a break from the podcast (“but not each other”!) for the rest of the summer and will return this fall. “We pour ourselves into our work and then we rest when we can,” Haupt says. “Thank you for taking time to listen to us talk about food and Legos and travel and rest and then also about church work,” Glenn adds. “All of us are under the fig tree of Jesus calling us to rest and meditate upon His Word. Thank you for listening. We’ll be back soon!”
