Save a Chair for Jesus!
Last night’s episode of THE CHOSEN entitled “Shabbat”, showed people remembering and celebrating God’s incredible creative work. According to the Torah, Shabbat commemorates the day that God rested from creating the world; the word Shabbat literally means “he rested.” Exodus 34:21 states: “Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest.”
Shabbat is, therefore, considered a day of peace and holiness. Think about some ways you can celebrate God’s work in your life. Where are some areas in your life that God may encourage you to slow down and allow your soul to find rest? Would He encourage a less rigorous schedule, less internet/ social media time, or something else?
We will be screening Episode 3 (“Jesus Loves the Little Children”) next Monday, August 1, 2022 from 6-7 PM in McNally Hall, followed by reflection and discussion (staying for discussion is optional). We invite you all to ‘slow down’ from your regular routine and join us. Bring your family, a friend or anyone whose soul needs to ‘find rest’.
Bring a light snack to share if you would like. We hope many of you will join us!
