Sabbath Rests

April 2024

Dear friends,

From April 13th until the end of June I will be on sabbatical leave from all my normal duties in our churches and villages.

The principle of sabbath rest, drawn from the laws of the Old Testament, is not just about having one day of rest each week, but about building patterns of rest and renewal into our lives in many different ways.

Our diocese invites clergy to apply for sabbatical leave after each period of ten years in full-time ministry. I am very grateful for the help and support of many people that has made it possible for me to do this. I see it as a privilege, and I am aware that many people would like to do something similar, but are not able to.

I am looking forward to a rest, and a change, and space to reflect on my years in full time ministry, and living and working here, and to seek God’s guidance for the future.

The sabbath pattern of rest is part of God’s wisdom for all of us, and there may be simple ways in which all of us can build some times or moments of rest and renewal into the pattern of our lives.

Revd John Waller
