Living with the Sabbath – Sabbath Rhythm

Tom Ryan

“It is immensely difficult for us to give ourselves permission to use time for creative non-doing, for being still, for being silent, for seeking nothing, for “wasting time with God” with regularity, not just when our backs are to the wall and we are too worn out to work at keeping control. We have lost the art, the  liberating discipline of living with a Sabbath rhythm. We’re card-carrying citizens of a culture that can do almost anything in and with space, but is fidgety, edgy and nervous with unscheduled time!”
