Jesus did not wait until everyone had been properly cared for, until all who sought were healed. He did not ask permission to go, nor did he leave anyone behind 'on call,' or even let his disciples know where he was going. Jesus obeyed a deeper rhythm. When the moment for rest had come, the time for healing was over. He would simply stop and, retire to a quiet place and pray...Come with me, he said. Let us go, and rest, and pray.
