We can easily “over spiritualize” our lives and try to be more spiritual than Jesus! He saw the need for physical rest even when legitimate ministry opportunities abounded. We can so quickly overwork ourselves and neglect our loved ones - sometimes even our own relationship with God! - in the name of GOOD work. Don’t neglect the necessary things for good things. That might look like taking time away from all those great activities to be with the ones you care about! Taking a minute to recharge, to slow down, to be reacquainted with your loved ones.
Anxiety is found everywhere in today's world! We have so much constantly on our minds, and this year has certainly brought an extra amount of fear and stress.

Hospitality is more than simply having guests over to your house. People will know if you really care about them, and hospitality is about showing people love.

We are here to humbly discuss recent events, the death of George Floyd, and how we as Christians should be reacting. What does true compassion look like? Does Jesus understand our pain?
