What an offer!

December 9, 2007

“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.” (from The Message, recorded in Matthew’s gospel, chapter 11)

    I did the liturgies for a 3-day retreat last spring and the retreat leader picked this very passage as the theme. It kept coming back the whole weekend. I love it!
