In the beginning, God spent 6 days creating the world and on the 7th day he RESTED.
If God rested from his work, we ought to reflect that in our lives. That's what Sabbath is all about. God created us in his image and when we work ourselves at a pace that's different than what he intended for us, we're going to feel it!
At NCC, we encourage people to practice a weekly, 24 hour sabbath to participate in 4 things: STOP WORK, ENJOY REST, PRACTICE DELIGHT, and CONTEMPLATE GOD.
We have a few resources below to help better explain what the Sabbath is all about.
“Sabbath isn’t a cold, arbitrary rule we have to obey.
It’s a life-giving art form that we get to practice."
