As fol­low­ers of Christ, our lives are filled with invi­ta­tions. We are invit­ed to pray and read scrip­ture. We are invit­ed to share our faith and serve those in need. We are invit­ed to wor­ship and invest in our church­es. This activ­i­ty is good and absolute­ly nec­es­sary. How­ev­er, if we are not care­ful our activ­i­ty leaves us tired and worn out, but the invi­ta­tion of Jesus is not to a life of burnout and over activity.

Instead, Jesus says, Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on reli­gion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recov­er your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me — watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay any­thing heavy or ill-fit­ting on you. Keep com­pa­ny with me and you’ll learn to live freely and light­ly.” (Matthew 11:28 – 30 The Message)

At this one-day con­fer­ence, Ren­o­varé teach­ers Car­olyn Arends and Chris Hall will intro­duce us to Anoth­er Kind of Life. We will explore truths and prac­tices designed to help us keep com­pa­ny with Jesus and learn the unforced rhythms of grace. How might we live freely and light­ly, so our activ­i­ty in the world over­flows from a Christ-cen­tered heart? If you have ever felt tired, worn-out, burned out on reli­gion, this day is for you.
