Join us for breakfast as we begin our new Bible Study “Celebrating Sabbath”. In the nine lessons of this Bible study – with passages from Genesis, Exodus, Deuteronomy, Isaiah, Matthew, Luke, and Acts – we’ll consider Sabbath
as a celebration, not a day of dreary formality.
as God’s intent for all of creation that includes busy women too
as one day of the week, perhaps a Sunday
as a time to surrender unhealthy striving and frantic busyness, and instead trust God will provide
as a reminder that life is precious and working too much is against God’s plans for our precious lives
as a day devoted to community and justice and not exclusively to self-care
Lesson One, “Making Space for Sabbath” leads us to think of Sabbath as a time that you conciously set asside to honor God by taking time off from everyday tasks.
