More Than a Sabbath

SabbathWe love this series from The High Calling a few years ago. Take the time… perhaps even on a Sabbath, to read how Sabbath principles can be lived.

Sabbath Basics

Last Sunday, our thanks to Peter Sinclair, who walked us through basics of Sabbath.

Marva Dawn was one of the theologians used to help us understand what God intends. To hear some of we heard on Sunday in Marva’s own voice, watch this video. The book is called Keeping the Sabbath Wholly: Ceasing, Resting, Embracing, Feasting. 

You can also watch stories of people who have taken up the command to remember the Sabbath day and have found that it has changed their lives.

And for fun, here’s another layer to the conversation in the arena of modern Sabbath.

Sabbath’s Rest to Delight

Here are two clips we watched on Sunday morning to consider how we might delight as a way of resting on Sabbath. We learned from Exodus 20 that we ought to rest as God rested in the creation story (Genesis 2.1-3). God’s rest at the beginning was a rest that included delighting!

Pure Joy on the Streets of Brighton and Madeline + Train.

If our lives are too busy so that we are too exhausted to dance and laugh and play on the Sabbath, then our lives are truly out of balance.
