Come Away And Rest


The apostles gathered around Jesus, and told him all that they had done and taught. He said to them, “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 6:30-46)

The invitation

goes out

to all

the frantic lives

“Come away

and rest.”
