Launch Party Pictures

Over 50 people were able to make it to the book’s Launch Party at the IKE Box. I know more of you wanted to make it… but were unable. It was a truly humbling show of support. Thanks to everyone who was able to make it!

Book Tour Update

1/23/23 – “Hustle In Faith” podcast interview – Here’s the link: Episode 217 – Rethinking Rest w/ Gregory D. Hall
1/29/23 – Sunday morning (10:30am) in the Open Heart Class at Salem First Church of the Nazarene.
2/4/23 – 8:00am – Salem First Church of the Nazarene Men’s Breakfast at Blondzees Guest House Restaurant (4850 Portland Rd NE, Salem, OR 97305).

Let’s keep booking stops on the “Rethinking Rest Book Tour”! Traditionally a book tour meant getting in a car and traveling for weeks on end. But there are so many other options available these days to meet with people. I’ve scheduled 7 stops on the book tour so far!

Will you brainstorm with me some different ways I can connect with people you know that might be interested in scheduling a time to discuss biblical rest. You might know someone personally… or you might only “know of someone.” I’m interested in any ideas you have.

THE GOAL: Add Stops on the Book Tour Schedule!
These can be virtual or in person, so think globally!
I’m willing to meet with anyone… anywhere to talk about Rest!
Small groups – Sun/Wed Classes at Church – Podcasts you listen to – Book Clubs – A Small Group of Neighbors in your house – Book Stores – Coffee Shop Discussions –
People You Met at a Bar!

Shoot me an email with an idea or introduce me to someone via group text…
and I’ll take it from there. I’ll give updates on our progress!

Curtis Zackery Interview

Here is a “Launch Team Preview” of the interview I had with Curtis Zackery, Author of “Soul Rest”. The audio from this interview will be produced into the January 12th podcast episode.

November “Meme Challenge” a Success!

The first “Launch Team Challenge.” was a complete success! I asked you to create a meme about rest… and a few of you spread your wings and gave it a try! Thank you for everyone who participated. I’ll leave instructions for creating a meme at the bottom of the page if anyone else wants to give it a try. Here are a few of the memes from the challenge…

How do I create a meme? There are several free websites available. One of the easiest to use is You just pick a picture (or upload one of your own) and add captions. Then press the “Create Meme” button. Once your meme comes up on the screen… just save it to your desktop (right-mouse click) or phone.

When you’ve created your meme… just email it to Greg ([email protected]). He will collect them and will eventually hand out big prizes* for those who participate!
* “big prizes” = worthless praise and maybe participation certificates.
