    “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.”  Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message)

    Living “freely and lightly” can sound too good to be true.  How can hectic and demanding schedules yield to the aching desire for “unforced rhythms of grace”?  What good is a desire to “recover your life” if you’re plain old “burned out”?  The desire for a different sort of life doesn’t appear out of thin air.  The longing for something more, is evidence that God is already at work in a person’s life.  The only reason we desire more of God is because of the Spirit of God at work within us giving us the desire to “keep company” with Jesus.

    Over the summer months we will be exploring different practices or “rhythms” that help us keep company with Jesus and open us up more fully to the transformative work of grace in our lives. The 9 weeks of summer will give you an opportunity to learn more about different rhythms, what they are and a challenge to take Jesus up on the invitation – to walk with him and work with him!
