Rethinking the notion of Sabbath as a spiritual discipline. In the Hebrew Scriptures the sabbath is tied to the first creation account in Genesis, where we find the repeated theme of the “goodness” of creation. Sabbath is a way that we reconnect with the inherent goodness in creation so that we can better carry the touch of “the good” into our life-actions.
