Advent Word 2020, Day 16 ‘Rest’

#AdventWord #Rest

God has sent us to “bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners.” Even Jesus suggested, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”

What surrounds my rest? Am I tired, exhausted even, from the spirit of God being on me, from following and from being sent? Do I deserve this rest? This quiet place? Even here resting, am I anticipating waking to acting with compassion?

Switching off for a few moments! 😴 One of our clergy takes a quick rest after lunch @ Diocese of Taiwan Annual Convention, August 15, 2020 😴 Gotta smile ~ that’s just a piece of green A4 paper folded up, with his face-mask underneath ~ so creative, so practical! 😇

And while you’re resting, check out this newly-released Nativity video by the children of Grasmere School in the Lake District, UK, set in a Covid-19 era, it’s just great ~ I love it!
