For me, the power of sabbatical was found in the way it creates the space in your life- the time in schedule and the freedom to explore your heart- to get deeper and deeper, in a way that is hard (impossible?) to do without a break from everything and everyone we commit ourselves to when living the life of discipleship. It brings new value and importance to scriptures like Luke 5:16, when Jesus would go to "deserted places to pray." (NRSV)
