Recovering Your Life
Have you ever heard someone say that they wish the day had more hours? This complaint stems from the dilemma of having more things to do but seemingly very little time. We are busy and we are constantly creating more things to do with our time. The result has been fatigue, sleep deprivation, extra hours at work, more activities for the kids and very little time for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. A key component of the creation story was God’s insistence on rest. The Sabbath day was born out of God’s cosmic action in creating the earth. Over the next several weeks, we will consider the role Sabbath plays in our spiritual lives. This is not a series seeking the restoration of the Sabbath Day per se, it is an invitation to implement the beauty of Sabbath into one’s life.
