“Balancing Sabbath and Service”

“Friends, a healthy life requires balance. If we are an athlete committed to growth and strength training and progress in our field, we know the value of rest days between intense workouts where those harmed muscles have a chance to restore, renew and grow. If we are a student we understand the value of enjoyment and the reward of leisure and how good that feels between these powerful times of study and work. If we’re in the workforce, we know the value of a weekend between work days, and as a people of faith we need inspiration, hope, healing, community, and the restoration that come with resting in God’s grace between our many hours of service.”
