I am renewing by taking my first Sabbatical.
I let go, for now, of almost all of my regular prayer leader positions and paused the booking of concerts. After 10 years as a professional musician and 10 years leading prayer professionally, I saw myself with an open space of possibility. Normally, I would rush to fill it, to grab onto bookings and plans in order to obtain financial and structural security. But this way is no longer sustainable nor fun. Time to learn, to grow and to be challenged. Time to renew the way I engage with work.
