Finding our rest in God by Ian Mobsby


This homily explores the theme of rest and the lack of it in contemporary living. Ultimately the Christian faith is about finding our rest in God, which requires us to face ourselves, our wounds and pains, and not running away from them. This homily was given originally by Ian Mobsby at the parish church of St Brides Fleet Street, and recorded on Sunday 22nd July 2012.

The beginning of the feeding of the 5000 begins with a little known introduction. Jesus was intending to take the 12 disciples into rest after they had been out on a mission, but Jesus takes pity on the crowds and performs a miracle. Taking our rest is a form of prayer as well as a time for regeneration. Because of this we need to take it seriously.
