The sabbath is at the same time familiar and foreign to us. The rhythm of a seven-day week with Sunday as a day “off” is integral to how we (and most people around the world) function, to the point that we mostly take it for granted. But the biblical idea of sabbath is so much more than a day of rest after six days of work. During the season of Lent—the six weeks leading up to Easter—we will explore the significance that sabbath still holds for us today in a society where our work and our leisure together devour our time. In a world sick with hurry, anxiety, and impatience, sabbath could be just the medicine we need.
