United Methodists across the globe continue navigating challenges created by the coronavirus pandemic. Creating safe ways to worship; innovating outreach ministries; seeking to understand ever-changing healthcare information. Some of us have experienced waves of hopefulness; others of us remain disheartened. We are tired, anxious and, perhaps, disillusioned.

It is at this place where Jesus calls out to us: “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28 NRSV)
