A hearty "welcome" to each of you new students and a happy "welcome back" to each returning student!
I pray these inviting words from Jesus will set the tone for the semester for all of us:
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)
Rest...recover...rhythms...grace...live...freely...lightly=keeping company with Jesus.
