Walking and Breaking Bread with Jesus

Scripture

 Jesus resumed talking to the people, but now tenderly….. “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 11:27-30 MSG)

 Walking and Breaking Bread with Jesus

 “I’m tired, life is stressful” might be a mantra for us as summer arrives. We look forward to get away, slow down and maybe even get some inner stuff sorted when we have some down time.

 Prayers for the Deck & Dock 2017 is our gift to you to encourage this inner reflection. This year’s title is Walking and Breaking Bread with Jesus. It is an invitation to awareness of his presence in our activities, our walks and our meals. Just hit this link …… for the printable pdf for your summer enjoyment.

May you respond to Jesus’ invitation to walk and work with him this summer and may you watch him in creation, family, friends and community. I will be back with a fresh and redesigned look for this little missive on September 11th.

A Prayer for Today

Father, Son and Holy Spirit, your remarkable dance of love has the power to draw us into yourself. Losing ourselves in your love, we find ourselves – fully human and fully loved. May we hear your humble and gentle heartbeat in the midst of the accomplishments and disappointments of life. Keep company with us in all the paths we walk alone and with others  .…. For Jesus’ sake.
