Rethinking Rest

There’s one question everyone must ask before they find true rest.
What’s My Place To Be…
And Thing To Do?

Welcome… I’m Gregory Hall the host of the Rethinking Scripture Podcast and its related website

Rethinking Rest is the first “Rethinking Scripture Project” I’ve completed. I’ve discovered that biblical rest is so much more than a one-day-a-week ritual. I’ll even venture to say… it’s not at all what you think it is. Rest is a fully-developed theology that begins in Genesis and it spans the entire biblical text.

I invite you to venture into the pages of Scripture with me. We will discover how your “place to be” and “thing to do” is the key to Christ’s offer of rest. Here’s the irony – we find rest while in pursuit of the specific work we were created to do.

This site includes a seven-week small-group study on biblical rest. Including Bible lessons, video teaching, a sermon on rest, and some blog posts also on topic.

Listen to an episode where I discuss this project in a little more detail.
