This afternoon, the west bank of Idaho Falls happened to be my office. It’s a great place to work. I studied to the backdrop of the constant sound of the falls, the beauty of white water cascading, and the intriguing sculptures of lava rocks.
The river is a magnet. Children skipped. Couples held hands. Tourists clicked their cameras. In fact, one tourist in a German accent asked me if there was a restaurant or coffee shop built somewhere on the banks of the river, equipped with a deck hanging out over the water. I laughed.
Everyone wanted to be close to the water. It’s dangerous. Exciting. And yet peaceful and nourishing. There is rest.
My work office scenario points to the kinds of experiences of what Christians find in Jesus.
