(sermon begins at 30:25)
Mark 6:30-34 and 53-56 When you find yourself weary, burdened and wishing for escape…there is a better way. Stress can force you into an unexpected stop in your life. There is a better way. Jesus offers a daily call, “Come to me.” Start with gathering around Jesus. When this happens fractured people become whole.
Jesus calls you to come away, ‘let’s seek together a quiet, secluded place to rest together.’ Rest from the Lord is restorative. Pause with a purpose.
Come to me, all you who are tired and are carrying heavy loads. I will give you rest. Become my servants and learn from me. I am gentle and free of pride. You will find rest for your souls. Serving me is easy, and my load is light.Matthew 11:28-30 NIVR
