Stillness is relative. Our bodies may appear motionless, beneath the surface we’re nowhere close to at rest. The thousand processes that give us breath and blood-flow. The onslaught of thoughts that assault without warning and drag us in every direction. This message sits with the promise of Sabbath; what it means to rest in a frenetic eco-system of constant availability and endless production.
“Observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy, as the LORD your God has commanded you. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your ox, your donkey or any of your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns, so that your male and female servants may rest, as you do. Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the LORD your God brought you out of there with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm. Therefore the LORD your God has commanded you to observe the Sabbath day.” ~ Deuteronomy 5:12-15
