Third Sunday: Sabbath

We return again to Sabbath.

We are called away from the work that defines the other six days to remember and practice what God first demonstrated. Sabbath is a time of rest, a time set apart from the hecticness of the rest of the week.

Today is a day to practice Sabbath. Share below what Sabbath is for you.

This week, a little something extra to break you away from work.

Some Keep the Sabbath Going to Church

By Emily Dickinson

SOME keep the Sabbath going to church;
I keep it staying at home,
With a bobolink for a chorister,
And an orchard for a dome.

Some keep the Sabbath in surplice;
I just wear my wings,
And instead of tolling the bell for church,
Our little sexton sings.

God preaches,—a noted clergyman,—
And the sermon is never long;
So instead of getting to heaven at last,
I ’m going all along! 1
