For Christmas my dear friend gave me an uncommon rarity: a book I'd never heard of. :) It was the set of books "Refresh" and "Reset" by husband & wife Pastor David Murray & Dr. Shona Murray. I looked at the back and refrained from rolling my eyes... ANOTHER book about grace? Well, ok, fine, my friend gave it to me, I'll give it a try...
As some of you may know from my past blog entry on postpartum rest, I have been realizing that our culture desperately needs to remember the meaning of rest. And **I** need to remember and incorporate rest in my own life. I've said before that if I ever write one book it will probably be on recapturing the Sabbath in today's rest-less culture... well... that clearly is NOT my life mission because David & Shona Murray have already done it!!
The books are very similar in content & style but are aimed at women & men respectively. I've found Refresh to be encouraging, practical, insightful, theologically astute, and so so so needed. If you are a go-getter type person, someone who feels overwhelmed, or you love someone who is either of those... read this book. Actually probably everyone should just read it. :) . I won't say more because... well... that would defeat the point of telling you to read the book!!
