So much of our time is spent striving, working, trying to make a place within our control. It is not a pointless struggle; we can bring hope and encouragement by what we do and say. (Although my attempts at brushing my hair before I started this morning appear to have been quite useless, and that is okay.)
Yes, we have been given a mighty purpose as stewards of the earth and a royal priesthood for each other. But there are times when we also need rest. Times to put away the work and enjoy the gifts of family, friends, water and earth and wind and all the beauty of nature and creation. There is Power in Rest. There is Power in Sabbath.
I invite you to join me in Home Communion below. And I invite you to join me in rest, and in the trust of faith, today.
