Sorry for the scarce updates this week. I’ve been quite busy (I am a missionary in a third world country, after all), and have had other tentmaking stuff taking up some of my focus with a start-up that I earn some of my support from, as well as launching a new project on the side. I won’t link to my new site just yet, but I will say it is podcast-related, and more along the lines of how-to tutorials, coaching, videos, and articles. Just getting it going has eaten away at some of my blogging time.
This week I invited Mark Burgess and Shaun Wissmann on the podcast again (finally, a new podcast episode). They’re both missionaries who are a part of missional community in Chorrillos, Peru. This week we talk about abiding and resting in Him.
This time we had to record it over at my house due to Shaun’s place not providing a quiet enough atmosphere. Only, that might have been pointless because there’s a bit of an echo in my living room –kinda like the time I interviewed Dennis Arrevelo at his kitchen table, forget to take into account that concrete walls are not the best for sound waves to travel. At any rate, that wouldn’t have been so bad if the neighbor on the third floor didn’t decide to blare her music, but I think due to my awesome Snow Ball mic and editing skills, I made the end result hard to hear any background noise — but not so much the echo. Boo.
At any rate, we got talking about rest. Why is it so hard for so many of us to stop, sit back, and take moments to simply abide? Why do many of us feel the constant drive and need to be busy doing something, anything, for the Kingdom of God?
