We are firmly rooted in the technological age. “Connect and Communicate” seem to be the buzz words of the hour. The average North American spends at least eight and a half hours a day in front of a screen. And now the urgency of slowing down, of finding space and time to think, is upon us. This is not new of course. In the 17th century, Blaise Pascal remarked that all of man’s problems come from the inability to sit quietly in a room alone. But before that, the Psalmist, in the Old Testament urged, “Be still and know that I am God.” In the hustle and bustle of our lives, there is a need to be still and let God speak to us through His inspired Word, the Bible. But are we listening, or are we too busy texting and twittering and face-booking. Jesus invited the people of His day, and His invitation is still open today, “Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
