Rest is good. God says so.
I love blogging and hope to do it for years to come. I love writing to clarify my thinking, sharing what God is teaching me, and linking to excellent resources–and I hope it is valuable to you, that’s why I do it.
Over the past couple of months, my blog has picked up steam and grown in exciting ways. As I look to the future and consider my ministry, my relationships, and this blog, I thought it would be most beneficial to take a month-long blogging break to set my focus on the Lord and other top priorities. I hope to be back blogging semi-regularly come October. (I will continue to post relevant articles and thoughts on my Facebook and Twitter pages.)
I have a few reasons to take a little break:
1. Rest. I love blogging–but like anything good in life, it needs to be done in moderation. Taking a break will help me refocus on the important things in life, refresh my mind, and rest more intentionally. I hope to hit the ground running in October with the blog and I have several ideas I’m very excited about–so stay tuned!
2. Renewed focus on friends, family, and life at church. In addition to spending quality time with friends and family, I’m part of a team that is launching a Spanish ministry at my church.
Please pray for us as we seek to bring the gospel to Spanish-speakers around us. There is tremendous need–but there is a tremendous God who can help fill the need.
3. I’m putting the finishing touches on a short eBook I’m putting out through Unlocking the Bible. When it is posted I will link to it.
4.I’m raising support for my position with Leadership Resources International. I work with our communications team in Chicagoland and also train pastors in Latin America to preach God’s Word with God’s heart. Right now I’m looking for monthly partners who can join me in strengthening the global church for biblical ministry through launching pastoral training movements (learn more here).
You can donate to my ministry here by selecting “Kevin Halloran” in the designation field. Please pray for me as I raise support and serve with LRI. I’m incredibly blessed to be on staff with such a great organization doing such impactful Kingdom work. If you have any questions or would like to know more about our work, contact me!
Please pray for me during this blog sabbatical of sorts for me to have a restful time filled with refreshment from friends/family and that I would make progress in raising support.
5. I’m praying for you (or at least I’d like to be!). I care about each and every person who visits my blog. If you have any prayer requests, feel free to email me at Kevin (at) kevinhalloran.net or send me a message on Facebook or Twitter with your request and I promise I will pray for you.
See you in October!
