A quote to begin the Sabbath:
The time is right to learn about rest from the long Jewish Sabbath tradition. The need is great. The frantic pace, the exhaustion that accompanies it and the resulting emptiness call us back to a rhythm that includes stopping and resting. We are drawn to the words of Jesus about abundant life and his peace that passes understanding, but often we don’t know how to access them. The sabbath is a concrete way to start, a practical and ancient solution to an enduring human need.
