What are you planning that will bring you rest?
I am at the Pacific Northwest United Methodist Church's Annual Conference. Think big church convention type thing. I am going to be commissioned as a provisional elder tomorrow. It will be a long, busy day. The rest will come at about 8:00 p.m. when the commissioning service is complete. OK. Maybe at about midnight when I finally relax! But, all in all, it has been a journey of love.
And I can rest into love.
“Love: a single word, a wispy thing, a word no bigger or longer than an edge. That's what it is: an edge; a razor. It draws up through the center of your life, cutting everything in two. Before and after. The rest of the world falls away on either side.”
