Balancing Rest and Work

Redeeming Work Conference 2015 – Portland


In this 14-minute Q&A session, AJ Sherrill, Parish Pastor of Trinity Grace Church in Chelsea, New York, and John Mark Comer, Pastor for Teaching and Vision at Bridgetown Church in Portland, Oregon, take questions from the audience about rest, work, and imagination. They talk about the tension between resting and working in the context of the sabbath God takes in Genesis 2.
