Rest was not something God did after his creation. Rest is something God did to complete his creation. And it was the only day of creation of whose end we are not told, because it is the only day of creation whose end was unintended.
I’m thankful for a time to retreat from the world into the woods this weekend. I was starting to feel little incomplete.
Pray for the 60 or so of us on the FAC Fall Retreat this weekend–that we could enter into the rest of God and find the rest of ourselves; also that we would never–ever!–leave.
