Sabbath

Sabbath (sabbath - shabbat - stop, cease). The Hebrew word shabbat that means stop, cease...
to be done before we are just done.

This four-week series on Sabbath has been developed by “Practicing the Way” (an organization that exists to develop free discipleship resources for the local church). They provide a wealth of resources for us to be able to dive deeper each week and extend the conversation and practice of Sabbath beyond Sunday.

In our era of chronic exhaustion, busyness, emotional unhealth, anger, and spiritual stagnation, few things are more necessary than the recovery of this ancient practice. This might be the most important practice for today because it has the grace to create a rhythm that will help you flourish spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and in relation to others. We will explore four key elements of Sabbath: Stop, rest, delight, and worship.
