Sabbath

introvertchurchplanter

It seems to me that Sabbath was made with us introverts in mind. A sunset to sunset of rest.

As a church planter my weeks are filled with meetings, introductions, hosting, smiling, talking, teaching, networking, coffee, gatherings, events…

I find myself crawling towards Sabbath.

My workweek mindset:

  • Sunday is tóhu vavóhu (what can I say we’re a church plant).
  • Monday damnable Monday.
  • Tuesday – wait, it’s only Tuesday?
  • Wednesday I begin seeing the light (or sunset) at the end of the tunnel
  • Thursday – wait, it’s only Thursday?
  • Friday is watching the clock tick towards the tranquility of Sabbath.
  • Sabbath, Sabbath, Sabbath
  • Rinse and Repeat!

As much as I love my Sabbath practices, I always need to be very careful that I remember the purpose of this Sacred Time.

To the biblical mind…labor is the means toward an end, and the Sab­bath as a day of rest, as a day of abstaining from toil…
