What I am Thinking About
Sabbath and Sloth are two very old and rather churchy words; today these words sometimes get rebranded as rest/self-care and laziness. Though, that wouldn’t be quite right.
Sabbath is a spiritual discipline – a time to shed our earthly work and immerse ourselves in what is holy – whatever that means for us. It is deliberative resting in God. It is conscious reflection on the grace which God extends, and I am in definite need of. Sabbath is a reorientation towards gratitude.
Sabbath is hard.
