This week, Mark shared about Jesus' time alone in the wilderness. He quotes Blaise Pascal: "The sole cause of a man's unhappiness is that he does not know how to stay quietly in his room." Pascal shows us that solitude reveals our fallen hearts, torn between madly diverting ourselves from own lostness and our desire for the lost Eden. Thus, we cycle between restless distractions and distracted resting.
