An important summer ritual for many of us is taking a vacation. Time away from jobs, home, commitments, and responsibilities--no matter whether it is a weekend or a week--offers an opportunity for renewal of bodies, minds, and souls. But going on vacation doesn't mean we also have to take a vacation from faith. Because we live in a culture that values quickness, immediate response, a driving pace of life, and constant connection, taking time for renewing the body and soul becomes an increasingly important practice of faith. Summers and vacations offer individuals and families the opportunity to connect with time, Sabbath, and spiritual practices in new ways.

This study discusses the importance of valuing different kinds of time in your life and offers practical suggestions for trying a variety of spiritual disciplines during your next time away so that time away from the usual routine doesn't necessarily mean time away from faith.

Elizabeth F. Caldwell is a noted Christian educator, author, coeditor of Growing in God's Love: A Story Bible, and an editor of the Common English Bible. She is Professor Emerita of Pastoral Theology at McCormick Theological Seminary and Visiting Professor in Religious Education at Vanderbilt Divinity School.
