Taking rest seriously in a restless world
Has your common response to the question “How are you doing?” become “Busy”? Our world is continually more and more restless and there are demands on your schedule and time that can seem slightly overwhelming at times and completely unbearable at others. For some, you may be continually plagued by worry–kept up at night by the thoughts of “what if” or the impending doom of a situation in your life. Rest may seem to evade you.
For this night, we will come together to talk about the rest we have in Jesus and how this reality allows us to truly rest. We will talk practically about the gift that Sabbath is to the Christ-follower and how this rich discipline helps to remind us of who we are, image God and reflect God’s peace to our restless world.
Our goal is for you to walk away with a biblical framework for rest and also a practical framework for applying the Gospel to your life in the area of anxiety, stress and worry.
