Sermon Description:

According to recent research, Americans spend more than 5 hours a day on leisure, with about 3 hours of that watching streaming content.  That’s a lot of leisure time.  And yet, 60 percent of Americans say they’re more tired than ever.  We’re exhausted. We want to stop. We want to rest. But the things we’re doing don’t seem to be replenishing us.  This is why the Biblical wisdom about Sabbath is so critical for our modern moment.  In Scripture, we see that Sabbath is not an escape from work, but an intentional entering into God’s presence.  It’s not about entertaining ourselves, but delighting in God’s goodness and grace.  And it’s not about meaningless leisure, but meaningful rest.  And for many of us who are worn out and tired, the invitation of God to Sabbath is likely exactly what our tired souls desperately need.
