Summer is a great time for much needed R & R. We hope you will give yourselves a breather. Remember—laziness may be a sin, but rest is ordained by God. That means among all the duties that a godly person will do, relaxing is one of them.

Summer is also an excellent occasion for creative ministry opportunities, as well as an ideal time for planning and preparing for the fall and winter church calendar. The articles in this issue of Synergy will jump-start your mind for good warm-weather ministry. They will also help you get your “ducks in a row” for the cooler months ahead. Make your summer count!

In service with you,
John and Daria
