Discernment is about being with God, paying attention to God, letting our every word and effort come from attentiveness to God. Sabbath is the place that nurtures that attentiveness. – Susan Currie

Sabbath nurtures our attentiveness to God and thereby enhances our practicing a preference for God. From the creation account in Genesis we see God’s choice to rest after completing his work, delighting in the beauty of all that was established. We are invited to join God in the blessing and holiness of Sabbath rest and enjoy the gifts offered as we’re attuned to his priority. Sabbath rest encourages a pace of life that allows us to see, hear, and notice God’s goodness and grace amidst our very full lives. Let’s slow down enough to listen more restfully to God.
