Remember Your Story

The Church of the Sojourners is a Christian community committed to being a witness of Christ’s Kingdom in the Mission District of San Francisco.  As a church family they engage in several Sabbath practices chosen “as a response to the question: How can I spend my time in a way which will help me remember the Story I’m in?”  

The practices vary from things like gardening to lighting Sabbath candles, but everyone in the church makes a point to spend Sunday mornings in quiet reflection and meditation until 11 AM.  Try this practice and invite others in your church to join you in taking time to remember the Story you’re in: the story of Christ’s restoration of the world.
