Take a look at this art piece entitled “Jubliee” by Lauren Wright Pittman

“In the Year of Jubilee, God offers rest – a break for farmers, relief for those experiencing economic injustice, and Sabbath for the land. This radical rest is counter to the rhythm of our lives; … Rest feels unnatural in a pandemic, but it’s available to us if we are willing to receive it. Rest slows our vision and illuminates gifts that normally whirl by us … Rest offers recovery … Rest offers perspective … Rest reminds us of our interconnectedness.”

This week, rest. Find 10 minutes a day to rest. Simply do nothing. Turn off your phone. Turn off the tv. Turn over your book. Just stare into space. Take some deep breaths. And consider … “Rest uncovers the enoughness in our lives, and as my dear mentor used to say, ‘Enough is abundance.’ What will we glean from this time of rest?”

God of Jubilee,
upend my internal narratives
about my worth
and security.
Gather me into
your holy imagination
of what is possible,
invite me into a new way of being.
