At the Abbey we feel compelled by the words of Jesus in Matthew 11:
“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.”
We hear these words and feel the tug towards another way of being in our hurried and anxious culture. Thankfully we don't have to try figure this out on our own, instead we can turn to the wisdom of what Jesus himself practiced - Sabbath. So if you find yourself drawn in some way to the words of Jesus or just exhausted and wondering if there is any alternative, then we'd love to invite you along on this four week journey with us. A journey in the Way of Jesus to learn how to take a real rest.
