WONDER WHAT IS MISSED WHEN IN A HURRY?


EVERY MORNING BEGINS WITH THIS REMINDER:


SLOW DOWN.........


THE INVITATION IS TO ENTER HIS REST......AND REMAIN THERE

Kent,
I'm on the section in 'Abba's Child' where Brendan talks about the original intention of the Sabbath (before the pharisees turned it into a rule). A day to celebrate creation and covenant, where you pause and reflect and recenter your life in God. I've reread the section a second time, because it's just amazing to see what's been lost to religious rule keeping.

Later!

It is wonderful isn't it Rick? The Sabbath Day was just a shadow of what would be made possible after the cross and resurrection and the sending of the Spirit.

The day of reflecting and the day of resting from all work is so much better now....it's a life of no longer trying to work to earn and keep something that is given to us graciously. Now to learn to rest and just live in that reality.
