“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest.”
The invitation is to everyone, not just some chosen few who have been tired or had a burden to bear. We all come bearing something – a sadness …a worry … an ache … a brokenness. Sometimes the cracks of our life are obvious, while sometimes we are pretty good at hiding them. All of us are cracked in some way or other, and it is wise to remember the haunting words of Leonard Cohen’s Anthem, “There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets through.”
