How often do we do all things and be all things in order to help people? In order to fit in, or be good, or feel ok? Paul’s letter to the Corinthians describes this kind of work of the Christian in the world and it feels overwhelming and kind of exhausting. But then Jesus reminds us, right in the middle of his overload of work and surrounded by people in need, that rest is important. How do you take time? How do you Sabbath? What does this practice of rest have to do with our own walk of faith?
