This Bible study walks us through the importance of cultivating Sabbath rest in our lives. This isn't couch-potato rest or procrastination; it is a time of restorative wholeness when we can put right our lives and relationships. When our tendency is to make our time all about us, an intentional Sabbath rest gives us a chance to reflect on God's provision, on God's attributes, and on God's love--to know more about the God whose image we bear. Through Scripture, discussion questions, and the voices of wise Christians through the ages, discover what Sabbath rest teaches us about eternity, God's victory over time, and how to live a God-paced life. There is great beauty and fulfillment in practicing Sabbath rest, as we create a rhythmic pattern of ceasing our own efforts and turning our attention to God. Chapters include articles for reflection, Scripture verses, and discussion questions for deeper thought. Each book also includes a Leader's Guide. These books are an excellent resource for personal devotions, small groups, Bible studies, and Sunday school classes. " The twenty-four spiritual practices in this series are Acceptance, Bible Study & Meditation, Celebration, Community, Confession, Contemplation, Faith, Fasting, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Hospitality, Justice, Mentoring, Outreach, Prayer, Reconciliation, Sabbath & Rest, Service, Silence, Simplicity, Solitude, Stewardship, Submission, and Worship."
