Invited to Rest

This weekend I was invited to rest. In a camp retreat center located in snowy pine trees beside a grand lake, 135 of us gathered to learn the “unforced rhythms” of grace.
The verse was taken from “the Message”

Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me Watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of Grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.

It was time set aside to think about prayer, play, and work. I’ll be blogging more about the weekend in the week to come, but in the meantime may you be invited to rest with grace-filled abandon.
