A very wise, insightful book, about the significance of rest and cessation from worldly activity. ( )

Millennia ago, the tradition of Sabbath created an oasis of sacred time within a life of unceasing labor. Now, in a book that can heal our harried lives, Wayne Muller, author of the spiritual classic How, Then, Shall We Live?, shows us how to create a special time of rest, delight, and renewal--a refuge for our souls.

This is a book for today's world, and don't be misled by the title, it is not a sectarian view of the Sabbath, but rather a broadly inclusive view of Sabbath as a day of rest in multiple religious cultures, and a practice that even makes sense in a secular setting. This is a book for all who are too busy to slow down. It is a reminder that if you don't slow down you will eventually burn out and be forced to slow down. It's central message is that by taking Sabbath rest you will have a richer, fuller life and you will be much better able to function overall. ( )

This book really made me reflect on the importance of taking a day of rest, both spiritually and physically. ( )

Worth the read. Helps me to realize that to "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy." (Exodus 20:8) requires intentionality. The demands of our lives create our forgetfulness. A time and a way of resting from the world and toward our Creator is not only a commandment, but needed for the restoration and renewal of our soul.

"Henri Nouwen was a dear friend of mine, a brother, priest, and mentor. He was also a fiercely asture observer of our worried, overfilled lives. Henri insisted that the noise of our lives made us deaf, unable to hear when we are called, or from which direction. Henri said our lives have become absurd -- because in the word absurb we find the Latin word surdus, which means deaf. In our spiritual life we need to listen to the God who constantly speaks but whom we seldom hear in our hurried deafness."

"On the other hand, Henri was found of reminding me that the word obedient comes from the Latin word audire, which menas 'to listen'. Henri believed that a spiritual life was a pilgrimage from absurdity to obedience -- from deafness to listening."

"In pursuit of knowledge, every day something is acquired.
In pursuit of wisdom, every day something is dropped." (Lao Tzu)

"Thomas Merton begins this oft-repeated prayer whith confession: 'My dear God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end'. In a similar was Suzuki Roshi exalts the virtue of what he calls 'beginner's mind,' a condition of being able to embrace and accept a certain level of inevitable unknowing. It is, he says, a fertile practice, because often it is when we do not know the outcome that all things become possible." ( )
