Guest speaker: Dr. Megan Roberts

Megan (Ph.D. McMaster) is a professor of Old Testament at Prairie College, in Three Hills, Alberta. In addition to her love of teaching the Old Testament, Dr. Roberts has recent experience teaching high school philosophy and geometry, taught high school and middle school Bible and choir in Cambodia for five years, and was a Cross-Country and Track Coach substitute teacher for two years. She has extensive experience in landscaping, enjoys climbing mountains in her spare time, and is involved in her church in various ways.

"What comes to mind when I think of Megan: the words determination, courage, spirituality, leadership, pastor. She is a born leader who has been able to consistently take on tasks that are risky and yet wise. She is one who thinks and breathes theologically and spiritually: her priorities and worldview are deeply shaped by her walk with God and her love for His kingdom" - Dr Mark Boda. 

theme: God's rest 

The topic of 'God's Rest' has been on our hearts because of the turbulence and change of this last year. The heart of this theme is taken from Matthew: 

“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 rhythms 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” (Matthew 11:28-30, The Message).

We can find true rest in life through walking with Jesus in the yoke. God’s way is not a burdensome way, as described in Matthew. Yes, we are in a metaphorical ‘yoke’ and walking with Him does require endurance. However, we can live at rest knowing that we share this yoke with Jesus. Jesus’ yoke is free and light because it is one of grace and relationship with Him. Through partnering with Christ, we can be free from the pressure of seeking significance and enter the joy of cultivating flourishing with our creator.
