Mark 6:30-32 NRSVue

30The apostles gathered around Jesus and told him all that they had done and taught. 31He said to them, “Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. 32And they went away in the boat to a deserted place by themselves.

Some thoughts on this scripture

The apostles were concerned about their doings, their words; Jesus seems to say to them 'Stand back a little. Perhaps it's not all about you but is about what God is doing in and through you.'

Jesus does not say, 'Go away to a quiet place', but he invites us to be with him - to be in relationship, in dialogue.
