Sabbath time can be a revolutionary challenge to the violence of overwork, mindless accumulation, and the endless multiplication of desires, responsibilities, and accomplishments. Sabbath is a way of being in time where we remember who we are, remember what we know, and taste the gifts of spirit and eternity.
–Wayne Muller, Sabbath
In his book Sabbath, Wayne Muller shares a series of practices from Jewish, Christian and contemplative religions that invite us to experience the delight of Sabbath rest. These practices are simple, can be combined, and are meant to be playfully tried out as we create our own Sabbath rhythms. Over the summer, you can read about some of these practices and try them out yourself.
