#211 Tired, so soon?

Here’s a verse that came into my head just now:

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

One week back at work and I’m already meditating on it.

What’s that about? That’s the holidays not being long enough or not having enough rest within them.

Give me a whole year off and I might manage to get somewhere.

One week in and I’m already too tired.

So, I ask myself: am I tired of Church too? The answer comes back (all too swiftly): yes.

Why is that? I think it’s because Church is seen as just another thing that I have to attempt to fit into my week/weekend when I could instead be be sitting still, staring into space, or, better yet… just be asleep.

Well. That’s a low value on Church, isn’t it?

Yes. It is. And I’d be the first to acknowledge that’s not a great way to think about Church. However, let’s be real and be honest… really honest… and talk about value adding.

How much value adding to my life does the Church contribute? I’m sad to say that over the course of my life (which is almost at 40 years) by and large for the number of hours that I’ve spent there, I don’t think the Church has value added as much as it should have to my life.

I ask myself why, but I don’t really have an answer.

I need to think about it more…

Yours going to have another nap,
