Retreat or Run?

Or you can do both in one day!

 
 
Jesus invites us to come…for rest and for life and for mission.
 
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
 
Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message)
 
 
We are the bride of Christ, the army of God, a force to be reckoned with when we accept the invitation to be called by our given name. (Click here to download a song that makes me smile.)
 

 
 
At the retreat we were invited to “run hard after God” through the song, One Pure and Holy Passion by Passion:
 
 
Give me one pure and holy passion
Give me one magnificent obsession
Give me one glorious ambition for my life
To know and follow hard after you
To know and follow hard after you
To grow as your disciple in the truth
This world is empty, pale, and poor
Compared to knowing you my Lord
Lead me on and I will run after you


In the afternoon, I ran in a 5K. The run was good for my health, but the cause moves my heart. Check out FORJ-MO. An invitation from a group of passionate people for us to pursue mercy and justice for all, especially our youth.
