Sabbath Sermon Series
Week 1 (Aug. 17 & 18) – Sabbath, A Mindset?
As people change, as culture and society transform, do we need to consider a new or different way of approaching the Sabbath? Overworked and under rested, how do we respond? Do we follow God’s commandment in Deuteronomy to keep the Sabbath holy and be still for a day? Or do we accept Jesus’ invitation in Matthew to rest? Or do we respond with a modern perspective for a modern time and a modern people that sincerely need rest and rejuvenation? How do we honor the past and live into the now? Come and see and listen to a personal perspective on keeping the Sabbath in the 21st century.
Week 2 (Aug. 24 & 25) – Rest; the Rhythm of Life?
The Bible tells us that God creates, and God rests, setting the stage for a natural rhythm to life. We see it in the changing of seasons, we see it when the Sun moves across the sky, and we see it when a loved one transitions from this material life to the one eternal. All things rest. But from rest, comes new life. From rest comes renewal.
But as a 21st century Christian, I often don’t rest, and I find I am rarely renewed. And why not? Do I get in my own way? If so, how do I let my guard down long enough to find myself flowing freely and restfully within the natural rhythm of things? What is it like to rest in the shadow of creation? And what new life can it afford?
Kyle Soderberg, Club 56 (Grades 5 & 6 Faith Formation) and Coordinator of Community Partnerships will be bringing his thoughts and personal perspective to this topic on August 17th & 18th, as well as, August 24th & 25th.
