Rain Man shared scripture from Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message):  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 rhythems 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.
