Rest

In the United States, clocks got set back an hour last Sunday. As a result, people have been disoriented all week long. In that context, we had an election. As a result, people have been disgruntled all week long. In that context, the weather has changed, Christmas music has started, Halloween candy is disappearing too quickly.

We need rest.

We need lots of things, of course. Answers. Questions. Meaning. Reasons. Reason. Love.

But with all that, we need rest.

Sabbath rest. Naps. A time around a table away from agendas. A little reflection on a Psalm or two.

And so, as we move into the weekend, here is my request to God on our behalf.

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.”

‭‭Numbers‬ ‭6:24-26‬ ‭ESV‬‬ River
