In this track, we invite Presbyterians and our friends who are resting and growing — pastors and teachers in-between calls, on sabbatical, and retired. We encourage you to find some stories and voices that resonate with you.

This month, we share the story of Barbara Cathey, a retired minister of PC(USA) in Chicago. Barb tells us how she prepared for retirement and accompanied her congregation (Edgewater Presbyterian Church).

Everyday God-talk with Cynthia Jarvis
Rev. Cynthia Jarvis, a Minister of Word and Sacrament at PC(USA), shares her lifelong commitment and love to solitude and literature, both of which are poetic and romantic. How your life can be whole and holistic surrounded by many friendships with diverse communities, instead of being confined to one relationship. How she encountered, not the end of her life, but another beginning of her life, by allowing these the cloud of witnesses in her life before, during, and after the forty-five years of ministry.

Everyday God-talk with Monica
In the first episode, we invite Monica, a retired teacher of yoga and guided meditation based in Chicago. She shares how our resting bodies are not resting until we intentionally lead them to rest. We can grow better through mindful resting, breathing, and praying. We share various ways of resting and growing as there is no right answer about how to rest.
