Vacation Time

“Working without resting, being busy without ever taking a vacation, performing all the arduous duties pertaining to ministerial or missionary activity and not making a retreat for relaxation, discussion, prayer, and meditation, will never do. Even Jesus, because of the heavy burden he had taken upon himself, needed periods of withdrawal (Luke 4:42). So did the disciples. It was for this reason that he invited them to come away with him to a remote place, where they would be able to rest up.” – William Hendriksen

Even OSP Pastors need to take a vacation once in a while, I’m going on mine tomorrow. This will be the first time in seven years my wife and I have been away together without the children, as well as the first time we’ve ever been to Hawaii. So, probably little or no posting from me during the next ten days. Expect more when I get back, D.V.!

About Andrew Webb

I was converted out of paganism and the occult in 1993 and while I was initially Charismatic/Arminian in my theology, I became Reformed and Presbyterian through bible study and the influence of ministries like RC Sproul's. After teaching in local bible studies, and taking seminary courses part time, I began to feel called to the ministry in 1997. I was Ordained as an RE at Christ Covenant PCA in Hatboro, PA in 2000 and as a TE by Central Carolina Presbytery in 2001 when I was called to be the Organizing Pastor/Church Planter for Providence PCA Mission, Cross Creek PCA's church plant in Fayetteville, NC (home to Ft. Bragg and Pope Airforce Base). In 2005 when the Providence PCA Particularized I was blessed to be called by the congregation to be their Pastor

    Thanks Randy, we had a wonderful time. My wife was kind enough to let me see all the memorials (USS Arizona, USS Missouri, Punchbowl Cemetery, etc.) that I’d always wanted to visit on Oahu. Sobering stuff and a poignant reminder that “dust you are, And to dust you shall return.” (Gen. 3:19)

    Well back to work. Expect some new posts this week and next week! (D.V.)
