Read: For Sabbath’s Sake: Embracing Your Need for Rest, Worship, and Community.

Many Americans balk at the idea of setting aside an entire day for worship, rest, and time with those who matter most to them. In a culture of constant busyness, the lines have blurred between our work and personal lives, and we feel pulled in many directions.

But we long for more time well spent—unrushed time to be alone, relax with friends and family, and grow closer to God. Many of us seem to have forgotten the ancient spiritual practice that can help us regain balance in our lives: sabbath.

For Sabbath’s Sake dives into the heart of what keeps us from embracing our need for rest, worship, and community. This month, we will dig into how we spend our time off, how time off has changed for us as individuals and as a society, why we resist sabbath and what we can do about it.

As you read For Sabbath’s Sake and this month’s content, you’ll learn more about the rich history of sabbath and how to overcome barriers to this spiritual practice. Most of all, at the end of our four weeks together, you’ll have achievable ways to build sabbath into your own life.
