Sabbath Rest: Invitation, Gift, and Blessing

Sabbath seems like a no-brainer. But, of all the 10 commandments, it’s the one we take for granted and rather loosely tend to ignore. God is a champion of creative work, that’s for sure. Just look around at trees, birds, oceans, and human beings to marvel at his work. But, he’s also a diligent advocate for Sabbath rest, when he and we are invited to join together in noticing, enjoying, and stewarding the life that surrounds us. Join the conversation and let’s keep Sabbath a priority.

"I have been thinking much about Sabbath recently, and this event was particularly helpful in directing my thinking. It was also very helpful for my wife who, although she has been thinking about the Sabbath for quite some time, learned some new things too. Thank you!"

"Psalm 23 is a landscape of my life. I felt this retreat was so life-giving. I felt so refreshed and like I just came off of the green pastures afterwards. You have designed it in such a way to overcome the "zoom fatigue" phenomena and it was a very effective venue for a retreat, because you could just enjoy it in the context of your home and not have to "commute" afterwards. It was a true Sabbath experience."
