I've been talking about Sabbath in the last couple of podcast episodes (Episode 61: Sabbath Rest and Your Identity, Episode 62: Sabbath Rest and Anxiety), and so I close the series in this episode talking about various practices. As I've come to learn more about Sabbath and practice various ways of being on that day, I realize that everyone's Sabbath may look differently. Ultimately, I believe the key is that Sabbath is a way of being, rather than doing, and so it's a day where we set aside our compulsion to have to do things, perform, be productive, etc, and we enjoy our relationship with God, others, and ourselves. In this episode I discuss:

  • How to assess your busyness (i.e. "white space on the calendar").
  • Setting a day to practice Sabbath.
  • Setting a time for your Sabbath practice.
  • Asking yourself questions about what a practice of being vs. doing would look like.
  • Allowing for the fact that your Sabbath will look different than other peoples.
  • Expecting resistance as you fight the culture of consumption and busyness.
  • Etc.
