A Month of Sundays
Summary: Rest is not a concept reserved for Sundays. To be true Sabbath keepers we must develop daily attitudes of rest and worship. We are called to enjoy God everyday of the week. Despite hectic, busy days, pressing demands and anxieties, God tells us to daily rest in Him. Using familiar passages in Scripture, Mathes encourages her readers to recapture the concept of what it means to rest in the Lord every day of the week...and everyday of our lives.
Personal Thoughts: Set up as 31 short meditations, I encourage you to take a month to go through this little book. It's a good read! Each meditation starts with a verse of Scripture and I particularly like that she uses texts from both Old and New Testament. It is also refreshing to read bits of the Catechism littered throughout the book. There is a real gentleness to the way the author writes which accents the theme all the more.
Quote: If we observe Sabbath as a festive day of rest, our heart's attitude will spill into our daily routine. We
can find meaning in our work. Wherever we labour and whether or not our work is appreciated, we find rest by imitating Christ's humility. pg 79
