How can Christians keep both sane and faithful in this hectic, confusing, technologically mind-boggling, cyberspaced world? How can we minister to those around us who are overwhelmed by the vexations of contemporary life? One of God's greatest gifts to us is the Sabbath–a day of rest, but much more than that. This series goes beyond Dr. Dawn’s book, Keeping the Sabbath Wholly, to explore how the keeping of the Sabbath day enables us to live prudently and joyfully in the present age and to minister to the world around us more effectively. Listeners will gain a vision for a biblical foundation under and a practical wisdom about, the keeping of a weekly Sabbath of ceasing, resting, embracing, and feasting. A renewal of Sabbath-keeping among Christians will change our lives, renew the church, and change the world!
