"The Sabbath is an invitation to enter delight... it is not merely a pious day and it is not fundamentally a break, a day off, or a twenty-four hour vacation. The Sabbath is a feast day that remembers our leisure in Eden and anticipates our play in the new heavens and earth."
- Dan Allender in his book Sabbath
The pace of life can be browbeating - work, strive, drive, persevere, push through, excel, build, motivate, commemorate, innovate.
"Delight doesn't require a journey thousands of miles away to taste the presence of God, but it does require a separation from the mundane, an intentional choice to enter joy and follow God as he celebrates the glory of his creation."
- Dan Allender
