I love my job as the director of NCF Student Ministries, but last spring I was approaching burn-out. It had been a great year of ministry with nursing students, but I knew I needed a break. My sabbatical in May arrived just in time!
Last month I wrote that God is near to everyone, everything and everywhere; he is omnipresent. But there is an added dimension to the “everywhereness” of God. He not only contains everything, he also penetrates everything to its deepest core.
