Does God want us to have fun?
Sure, God wants us to take time to rest, but should we also take time to play? Should our Sabbaths be serious?
These are the questions that fueled this study. Pulling from Old and New Testament passages, "While on Vacation" is an attempt to capture God's perspective on having fun. It's a devotional; it's vacation journal; but it's also a theology of play.
"While on Vacation" includes 16 devotions, dozens of memory book activities, a place to "rate your experience," a world map to track your travel, ideas for your staycation, a place to plan your "re-entry," 32 fine-lined pages for journaling, sudoku, mazes, slitherlink, a crossword puzzle and 4 pages for adult coloring.
This book is designed to be your companion for those times when you want to rest, enjoy yourself, have fun, and relish your time away from everyday life but you don't want to leave God behind. Instead, you want to have fun with God. Whether you're on vacation, or--in the words of Bill Murray's character in "What about Bob?"--you just want to "take a vacation from your problems," then this devotional is for you.
I hope you find this devotional ] journal to be the ultimate guilt-free guide to staying in love with God while on vacation.
