Sabbath – A.J. Heschel

Image

Sabbath is a time of rest – enjoying the presence of friends, family, and the LORD. Set apart for that which is eternal. I pray that you have a wonderful sabbath rest!

The meaning of the Sabbath is to celebrate time rather than space. Six days a week we live under the tyranny of things of space; on the Sabbath we try to become attuned to holiness in time. It is a day on which we are called upon to share in what is eternal in time, to turn from the results of creation to the mystery of creation; from the world of creation to the creation of the world.
