A short talk for the start of the busy Advent season. This talk uses one of may favourite stories to encourage people to rest, stop, slow down in the midst of a busy time to rest.
Jesus said, “Come with me … to a quiet place and get some rest” (Mark 6:31).
One of my favourite stories is about the world wood chopping competition. Now the champion was a bit older than he used to be – well, who isn’t – but he was still the champion.
