Give it a rest?

officePastor's Blog

We’re headed toward the last Sunday in Lent in our journey of fasting from hurry and worry.  How are we doing?  The prayers for the Prayer Chair have been blessings for me.  However, I still find myself in the hurry and worry.  How about you?

Our scripture passage this week from Mark invites us into two vital, life-giving directions.  Jesus guides us to be open to doing new things in new ways.  Jesus also speaks to our hurry and worry.  In essence, he nudges us to “Give it a Rest” as he explores Sabbath practices.  Let’s ask ourselves what is overwhelming our lives that Jesus desires for us to “Give It a Rest”?

Come and worship with us Sunday!
