The Blog of Darryl Dash

This blog is about how Jesus changes everything. He changes:

Our relationship with God

Our relationship with others

Our vocations - how we live and work in this world

Our ministries

This blog exists to explore some of the ways that Jesus changes everything. It provides resources and articles that will help you think about the ways that Jesus can change every part of your life.

The Lord himself invites you to a conference concerning your immediate and endless happiness, and He would not have done this if He did not mean well toward you. Do not refuse the Lord Jesus who knocks at your door; for He knocks with a hand which was nailed to the tree for such as you are. Since His only and sole object is your good, incline your ear and come to Him. Hearken diligently, and let the good word sink into your soul. (C.H. Spurgeon, All of Grace)

Blog Sabbatical

I've always been impressed when Trevin Wax shuts down his blog for a month. Last year Trevin gave four reasons why he took a blogging break during the month of July:

  1. Need for spiritual refreshment
  2. Other important responsibilities vying for his time
  3. Blogging can be addictive
  4. Blogs are inherently self-promoting

The time off doesn't seem to have hurt Trevin's blog. You could argue that it's stronger as a result of his blog sabbaticals because it gives him time to reflect and to be renewed.

I begin a three-month sabbatical starting today. I'm really looking forward to this time away to be refreshed. In fact, I'd appreciate your prayers during this time.

Beginning today I'm taking a blog sabbatical for the month. No new material will appear here for the month of June. On July 1, I'll resume blogging.

By the way, I'm also taking a break from Twitter for at least the next month, and I've signed off Facebook until September.

The archives are open, and you might even find some good things back there. Until July 1, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. See you in a month.
