“Come to me all you who are weary and carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”—Matthew 11:28
We come to you
After the liturgical intensity of Advent,
After the logistical demands of Christmas Eve,
After the heavy pastoral care load of the holiday season,
After the shopping and wrapping and baking,
After negotiating family schedules,
After avoiding contentious conversation topics,
After late nights and early mornings and crowded calendars.
We come to you weary,
Still carrying heavy burdens.
Give us the promised rest.
