The apostles returned to Jesus and told him everything they had done and taught. Many people were coming and going, so there was no time to eat. He said to the apostles, “Come by yourselves to a secluded place and rest for a while.” They departed in a boat by themselves for a deserted place.
--Mark 6:30-32 CEB
Even Jesus needed a break once in a while, right? Time to refresh and renew, to pray and to rest. Of course his "vacation" didn't work out quite that way, but still, he was looking for quiet for a time.
That's what I'll be doing over the next several weeks, taking a vacation. I hope you all get a break this summer, too. Like Jesus, we all need time to refresh and renew, to pray and to rest. Then we can return with new strength, ready to do God's work.
See you all in a few weeks!
