Even as a pastor, while I had assumed that growing up in a preacher’s home would be enough, I came to discover that my responsibility as a parent meant engaging them in positive conversations about why faith is important and the difference it makes in life.

This weekend is Labor Day weekend, a time when we pause to reflect upon the value of our work.  I always thought it was ironic that we celebrate Labor Day by engaging in acts of leisure.  You might think that such a celebration would involve more work, but in truth we humans work so that we can have more time for things that give us true rest.
