Worship and Rest: ReVITALize

It is the month of May and is now Spring. Despite the unpredictable weather, this is the season where many of us clear out, clean up, or gain a sense of reprieve from the harsh winter months. There is a burst of energy connected to this season which usually fuels these actions. It is this thought which brings me to this months topic: ReVITALize. Without notating its concrete definition, seeing the word vital within a sentence or body of words may introduce an assumed sense of urgency. Whereas, in other instances, say if used within a title, vital may appear less urgent. For example, The Office of Vital Statistics. Seeing this title does not necessarily cause a reaction because it is known to be an office whose administrative undertaking is that of keeping governmental statistics about births and deaths.
