Sabbath: Holy Rest
Monday, August 24, 2020 at 1:00 pm
In the LHUMC lounge
Sabbath is a “church word” that we don’t pay much attention to. It may seem archaic and outdated, but Sabbath is a call to rest – to follow our Creator God’s example of creating and then stopping from creating in order to find renewal and rejuvenation so that we can return to creating. In our daily lives, especially in the Western world, productivity and accomplishments are the goal. As we’re living through this time of Covid-19 and living with the changes in our lives, what have we noticed about our rhythm of work and rest? We take pride in being “busy” – so much so that we can forget the need to stop, rest, and remember that we are meant to take and make intentional time to rest in God’s presence. It is holy time that serves as a powerful connection to our Creator. It is holy time that helps us to love God and love others.
On Monday, August 24 at 1:00 pm the Worship Connections Team will gather at church in the lounge to brainstorm for this series. Please take some time to read through the information below and preview the videos if at all possible.
