Re-Creating the Sabbath
Pastor Bonnie Kline Smeltzer
“Then [Jesus] said, ‘The Sabbath was created for humans; humans weren’t created for the Sabbath. This is why the Human One is Lord even over the Sabbath.’” – Mark 2:23-3:6
As we begin the summer, we will look to what Jesus taught about keeping the Sabbath. In order to tend a new creation within us, we focus less on rules, and more about what gives us life and light as a way of “Sabbath-making!” This, then is the way we are refreshed and renewed so that the light of Christ can be reignited and shine within us. What practices of Sabbath will we engage in this summer that will refresh our spirits?
