We live in a culture that is flat out busy. The demands of work, the over involvement in extra curricular activities, and the constant pursuit of more has left many on a hamster wheel of exhaustion. There is also the tension that, in many ways, this kind of life has become a badge of honour in our cultural moment. When someone asks how we are doing our immediate response tends to be, "busy!" as if this was a good thing.

What about followers of Jesus? Should our practices reflect something different?

Our spiritual practice for June and July is the ancient discipline of Sabbath. We are encouraging our community to set aside one day a week for rest and worship.

You will find a number of resources, including teaching and recommended reading, at that will help lead you into what Sabbath is and how you can practice this!
