Message: Importance of rest

This week's takeaway from church

In the past getting sick meant weeks, even months of convalescence. These days we expect to take a few pills and be well again in days. On the one hand this speaks to the great advances of medicine, on the other it reveals how rushed we have become.
When we go through tough or upsetting experiences there can be a temptation to carry on as if nothing had happened. But there is wisdom in slowing down and taking the time to recover, even God rested after creating the universe. There is discipline is allowing time to heal.
