REST

We live in a culture that loves to maximize everything! Push the limits as far as possible. And then, push some more. This is our standard operating procedure in nearly every area of our lives.

Work hard. Play hard. Crash hard. Repeat

We are overloaded in every arena of life. We’re like minnows caught in a flash flood of good, successful, even unselfish activity. In many ways, we are victims of progress, which “always gives us more of everything faster and faster.” The problem is - most of us don’t need more and we definitely don’t need it faster. What we need is margin. What we need is rest.

REST. It’s exactly what God so generously offers us in the gift of Sabbath.

This series invites you to step into summer and stop to enjoy the rest of God. We’ll explore and attempt to dispel some of the misconceptions about Sabbath, recall God’s gracious instruction and generous permission to delight in Sabbath, and demonstrate inspiring new ways to open and enjoy one of God’s greatest gifts - the gift of REST.
