Growing Up Seventh-Day Adventist: Keeping the Sabbath

2 thoughts on “Growing Up Seventh-Day Adventist: Keeping the Sabbath”

  1. I loved reading this. Been thinking a lot lately about finding a way to bring observing a Sabbath back into my life. I’ve talked to Jewish, Buddhist and Christian friends who observe some kind of sabbath and they too say that there is something important about detaching from the every day and allowing space for being open to the holy or simply open to life/silence and what lives within it. This is one thing that growing up and experiencing formal religious practice does – the things we resist when we are younger are there later like familiar, patient souls to help us when we are ready. The discipline to do it is the challenge, no?

    1. That’s precisely the point. You’ve hit the nail on the head. Having the discipline to take that time in the midst of all the chaos around us and in us to let the divine in. Thank you for your perspective! I hope you find that.
