In the unrelenting busyness of modern life, we have lost the rhythm between work and rest. All life requires a rhythm of rest. There is a rhythm in our waking and in our sleeping. There is a rhythm in the way day dissolves into night, and night into morning. There is a rhythm to the seasons as the growth of spring and summer is hushed by the dormancy of fall and winter.
In a culture that values action and accomplishment over rest and respite, we have lost our rhythm. Because we do not rest, we lose our way. We miss the stillness that would give us wisdom. We miss the quiet that would give us peace of mind. We miss the delight of simply being—with God, with others, with ourselves. For want of rest, our lives are in danger.
It is time to recover the rhythm of rest by reclaiming the meaning and practices of Sabbath. Join us for this seven-part series on finding rest and delight for our busy lives. What we’ll discover along the way is that when we keep the Sabbath, we are caring not only for ourselves, but for the whole world.
