Jesus says, “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”
Who among us is not weary these days and in need of rest? A word that comes to mind for me, and I’ve heard others say the same, is EXHAUSTED. We, collectively, are exhausted. We are tired of this pandemic that keeps rolling over us in waves. We are tired of our grief and loss. We are tired of the injustices that continue to fill our news headlines. We are tired of feeling powerless. I feel the collective exhaustion around and within me, at Berkey, at the seminary, and beyond.
- Matthew 11:28 - 30
