God wants us to rest: Why do we resist?

The Rev. Allen Burris encourages clergy to exercise enough trust in God and faith in their congregations to break the seven-day-a-week cycle of worry and work. Without it, he says, we cannot know the rest of God – intending the double meaning. Clergy and caring congregational leaders will benefit from reading and reflecting on Burris’ meditation on the holy power of fulfilling God’s command to intentionally pause and break the cycle of our busy lives with rest. Read Burris' essay, "An Invitation to Rest: What a Clergy Renewal Grant Can Do for You," provided by Resources for American Christianity to learn more about how to get out of a spiritual rut by intentionally pausing so you can know the rest of God.
