Sabbath provides time and space to “bind up the wounds of the brokenhearted.” Psalm 147:3. Maybe you’ve been hurt by the Church and its list of Sabbath-keeping do’s and don’ts. Could it be time to enter into honest dialogue with safe people who are willing to wrestle with all Sabbath can be for you this year?

Discussion Questions:

1. How is Sabbath a day of inclusion, healing and liberation for you? Reflect deeply on how Sabbath can be so much more than “seven ways to a happy Sabbath!”

2. How can the Sabbath remind us to think about the boundaries we need for healthy, safe relationships in our families and the larger community?

Be well, and love well.
