Press Pause

The fall is such a busy time, Christmas is so chaotic, and spring is full of tests and taxes. But summer, summer is the sweet slow season of beaches and baseball. This summer at Edenton Street, we are going to make the most of the season by exploring the topic of rest together. Rest is central to the Christian story: on the seventh day of creation God rests, on the first day of their lives Adam and Eve rest, and on the first day of the week Israel rests.

Rest is critical. In fact, Jesus once said it this way, "I am the vine and you are the branches, those of who abide in me and I in them will bear much fruit, but apart from me you can do nothing." That's a pretty strong statement but it begs the question: ever felt spiritually stuck or unproductive? If so, perhaps the reason is you're in need of a some rest.

Our summer sermon series, entitled "Press Pause," will begin on June 8th and for three months we will explore together the joy and power of resting in God. Each week we'll consider one specific facet of the kind of life that pressing pause makes possible; a life defined not by stressing and striving but instead by laughter and dreaming, blessing and receiving, walking and sleeping. It's the sort of life that Jesus called "abundant" and we believe it’s the kind life we all desire but the truth is it’s only possible if we learn to “press pause” and abide in Him. We hope you'll join us this summer for a season of rest.
