Prioritizing The Sabbath

by Jeaneene Nooney | January 2011

My husband and I, too, have been long concerned with Sabbath-keeping ("All Who Labor," by Lauren Winner, September-October 2010).

My husband and I, too, have been long concerned with Sabbath-keeping ("All Who Labor," by Lauren Winner, September-October 2010). Somehow, though, we've slipped into a day where we rest somewhat, but not really.

I would urge young people, especially, to prepare on Friday and Saturday for the Rest. Make it happen. You can and should do it. When all the week is work, there is no time to focus on our Maker.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
