I’ve been reading Dan Allender’s book Sabbath (part of Thomas Nelson’s Ancient Practices Series) for a chapter I’m writing on the subject. Allender says that once the Sabbath ends, the next three days can be for reflection, “a remembering of the day.” The three days before Sabbath can be for anticipation and planning. I love this because it puts Sabbath at the center of our experience of time and of course our worship of God.
What do you think? What are some ways you celebrate the Sabbath on your own, with your family, and with your faith community?
