What Was It Like Trusting God And Eating From The Hand of God

Our church-wide Sabbatical journey enters the phase of Reflection. Taking a sabbatical is a unique opportunity to step away from the daily demands of life and focus on personal and spiritual growth. By practicing Sabbatical Reflection, you can deepen your relationship with God, gain clarity and perspective, and develop habits that will support your growth even after your sabbatical has ended.

That fiftieth year shall be a Jubilee to you; in it you shall neither sow nor reap what grows of its own accord, nor gather the grapes of your untended vine. For it is the Jubilee; it shall be holy to you; you shall eat its produce from the field— Leviticus 25:11-12
