Saturday February 14th Mark 1: 38 Jesus replied, "Let us go somewhere else—to the nearby villages—so I can preach there also. That is why I have come." 39 So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons. This is what happens after a sabbatical. Refreshed, Jesus travels to the surrounding villages and brings renewed faith, hope and wholeness. Pastors and parishioners; take time to refresh yourself, not only for your sake, but also for the sake of all those around you.  Congregations, take time to refresh yourself, not just for your sake, but for the sake of those around you.  How many of your hymns are less than 10 years old?  How many greater than 50 years old?  Now turn on any radio station in your area and what do you hear?  Are you moving forward, or are you circling the wagons? If all you are doing is circling the wagons, your congregation is getting ready to die.  It is only when you reach out to the mission field that life comes to those within and those you meet along the way.
