Finding the Spirit of Sabbath in a Busy World


sabbathAt first, I thought Shelly Miller’s book, “Rhythm of Rest”, about the Sabbath was going to about keeping the Sabbath because it is a requirement and list the blessings associated with it and be filled with testimonies of people who just confirmed her ideas about the Sabbath. But.it’s.not.  Thank goodness.

Instead of being legalistic, Miller’s book talks about ways to be intentional about rest, how to tune out distractions and how time with family and friends can be Sabbath experiences.  I was so encouraged by this book.  The pure fact that any day can be our Sabbath and we are not locked in to Sundays was completely refreshing.  Not only that but Sabbath is not about doing nothing but about not doing those things that take you away from the rhythm of rest.

If you are tired and weary and longing for rest, and don’t know how to experience Sabbath, start with reading “Rhythms of Rest”.  You’ll be glad you did.
