We are now in the middle of the holiday season, and some of us may have already been on holiday, while for others a holiday may now be just a distant memory.  Going on holiday and escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life is proven to be beneficial to our health and wellbeing.  In the Bible we read that Jesus knew the importance of taking time out with his disciples to sit apart from the crowds and rest for a while – Mark 6:!3 “Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest”  Taking time out enables us to rest.  It helps us to recharge our batteries, revisit priorities and return to the routine of life with a new perspective.  Over the next few weeks, whatever you are doing, we pray that God will bless you!  Have a fantastic summer!
