Sam Van Eman is another of the HighCallingBlogs.com people I’m getting to know.

Culture Editor at HCB, Sam also blogs at New Breed of Advertisers: Becoming Good Neighbors to the Consumer Next Door, inviting marketers to become good neighbors to the consumer next door.

Sam is also a staff specialist for the CCO, an organization that partners with colleges, churches and other organizations to develop men and women who live out their Christian faith in every area of life.

Visit A Sideways Glance and you’ll discover that Zoe Sandvig spent a couple of months in the country where she was born: Australia.

In one of her posts she describes “one of the most breathtakingly sleepy towns on the southern edge of New South Wales: Nelligen.” A town that “invites passersby to take a Sunday afternoon nap with it.”

Is there a place you’ve been that invites rest? That creates an oasis, a retreat, a space to let go? Have you found your Nelligen?
