Sabbath Time Anyone?

It doesn’t matter what our faith tradition might be, or even if we have a faith tradition, it is imperative for all of creation to take time for Sabbath rest. Sabbath doesn’t mean taking a day off to catch up on errands, or to clean the house, or go shopping. Instead Sabbath rest invites us to set time apart, sacred time, to let go of our need to do and to embrace our call to be. I invite each of us, during this week of Spring Break (and I know that it isn’t really a break for our faculty) to make time to just relax, to be, to enjoy the wonders of spring. If we take time to delight in life we will discover that we return to our work refreshed and with more creativity. So stop and enjoy the daffodils–they won’t be here for long!
