Now some of us have felt as if the last year has been a bit like a lengthy sabbath (even if forced) but is that really true? Walter Brueggemann, who has thought long and hard about biblical sabbath rest, speaks about the pandemic experience in this way: ‘many of us are committed to time as something to fill, master, control and plan ... so this (staying home) feels more like sheltering under house arrest, and it hurts ... we become rest-less, unable to enter restorative rest’. So ... over the next three weeks, come on a journey as we explore and pray into ‘sabbath’ as restorative rest, which brings freedom from the insatiable need to control our lives and to trust in our generous God who is enough, and does not ask if we have done enough to prove ourselves.
