    Please continue exploring the topic of rest. It’s the habit I struggle the most with and, honestly, I’m not sure what constitutes “rest”. It seems obvious on the surface, but I feel our society has programmed us to GO non-stop. Thanks for sharing your gifts and faith with us!

      You bet, Jennifer. I agree. This one is extremely counter-cultural and hard for me to grasp too. I have a lot of legalistic ideas about what I can and cannot do on Sundays floating around in my head but I’m not sure how they relate to the true sabbath Jesus invites us to. I’d love to hear any insights you have too.
