Getting Ready For this Sunday: 07.19

Psalm 23
Mark 6:30-34, 53-56
“The Distance of Intermission”

Jesus’ invitation to the disciples “to come away and rest” reminds us of slowing down for summer and vacation. But the remainder of the passage feels like a summer break missed. Psalm 23, however, is a bit of Sabbath. Are there ways, in the midst of our overbooked and busy lives, that we can find the breaks, rest and Sabbaths we need? Come to church as we consider our needs and Jesus’ response.
