Sabbath Rest and Fly Fishing

Humans are designed for work as much as they are designed for rest. Unfortunately, our culture is to a large degree imbalanced towards work. One of the many ways one can rest without remaining completely sedentary is to fly fish…to get away from the busyness of life; to connect with others, and enjoy the beauty of what God has created in nature. Time on the water can also provide a space for connecting with God. If you are interested in learning how to fly fish see Michael Lillie after the service at the fly fishing table in the Fellowship Hall or email him at Michael is working to plan two events for this next year. First is an introduction to fly fishing day where anyone, regardless of experience can come and learn to fish. The second is a three-day retreat to a more remote location where one can enjoy connecting with others in God’s creation.
