“Rest as Resistance ”

Rev. Elaine Gehrmann and W.A. Shannon Morrison
In her book Rest is Resistance: A Manifesto, Tricia Hersey says, “Treating each other and ourselves with care isn’t a luxury, but an absolute necessity if we’re going to thrive. Resting isn’t an afterthought, but a basic part of being human.” This morning we will explore the precious power of rest, and how it might empower us to resist forces that want to keep us exhausted and compliant.
