5 Practical Ideas to Rest & Work – Josh Reeves

3. Read strategically

Read Tim Keller’s book on work.

4. Encourage creativity

Create a space for people in your part of the city to express their creative talents. This could be an art group, music group, crafts group, poetry group or really whatever the people in your area are doing to express themselves creatively.

5. Monitor your rhythms

Take a look at your schedule and the way you are spending your time. Make sure that you have a solid rhythm of work and rest. Share your schedule with your missional community and seek wise council on how you can get your schedule in a good rhythm.

Consider the following Bible texts:



MARK 2:23-28
