We are a driven people. As Americans we cherish our power and right to self-determination. We want to make life work on our terms and for our ends. However, we soon discover our personal limits and capacities. Sooner or later this can make us angry and jaded. Jesus offers a different way to live life, a way of life that leads to rest and peace.
