“Rest, Relaxation and Renewal”
It’s summertime and we are in one of the warmest months of the year here in Canada. For manythat means vacation time. Time to get away from our usual routines, schedules and to do lists for even just a short break. Our passage this week from Mark’s gospel shows us that even Jesus and his friends needed to get away from it all once in a while. It didn’t work so well for them though. There is very little rest for the weary in ministry, it seems. There is almost nowhere that Jesus and the guys could go that there were not needy people waiting for them, hoping for a touch from Jesus.
