You may be familiar with the out of office message or the recording that you hear on the ‘phone ‘The Vicar is on their post-Easter break.’ Frustrating I know if you want an answer there and then, book a wedding, arrange a baptism, use the hall but we all need a break. That’s what I’ve been doing this week. So I hope you’ll excuse there being no proper Living God post today. All I’ll say is that the break was great and I look forward to being back. And I always give thanks that Jesus gave us a good model of taking time out. 

Jesus rests

Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.’ For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. (Mark 6.31)

He and the disciples needed a break, to eat, to rest. So do we. Normal service will be resumed as there is a great deal going on to reflect on.

Living God, bless our working, bless our resting. Amen.
