I’m planning my sabbatical (April 8-June 8, 2013) and am looking forward to three main aspects:
1) time with family
2) a pilgrimage to central Italy with Marcus Borg and Dom Crossan called “The Apostle Paul and Roman Imperial Theology”
3) a time of spiritual deepening
Plymouth’s Leadership Council approved my sabbatical plans on February 11, and I’m excited by the prospect of regeneration personally and also hitting the “reset” button on my ministry.
My sabbatical plan and goals are here if you’d like to read them.
