Here’s Another Sabbath Manifesto


I recently wrote about the Sabbath Manifesto and encouraged people to think about their own principles for Sabbath. Last weekend I was with the women of Providence Presbyterian Church for their women’s retreat. I had to leave Saturday night to preach at Tiny Church on Sunday morning, but look what they came up with after I left!

  • My needs are important!!
  • Visit friends & family.
  • Breath of life & stuffed animals.  Pet therapy.
  • Scuba dive & take photos to remember it by.
  • Gratitude.
  • Find God in things that delight me.
  • Take five minutes to breathe & to center.
  • Sing a song & touch God.
  • Learn a scripture – Your scripture.
  • Let go!  “I’ll think about that tomorrow.” ~Scarlett O’Hara
  • Pray for those that are lonely.
  • Journal.
  • Keep laughter in my heart.
  • Worship – With a community.

By the way, I would love to come and lead your congregation or organization in a Sabbath retreat or workshop! I’m currently booking fall 2014 and beyond. Find out more and get in touch
