Speaker: Tristan Sherwin
'Jesus said, ‘Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke fits perfectly, and the burden I give you is light.’ (Matthew 11:28-30, NLT, italics mine)
At MCC, we want to encourage, cultivate and exhibit healthy rhythms in life. We want to be a church that truly understands that work, rest and play are all gifts from God that can easily become unbalanced if not managed wisely. Our heart is not to see people as commodities or resources. We need to resist cultivating a ‘burnout culture’, where our expectations of others (the church, the leadership, those around us) become burdensome and exploitive, because we understand that human life is not about productivity.'
