Sabbath Rest

Sabbath as Communal, Not Individual, Nathan Stucky – Video and Discussion Outline

Questions for Discussion:

  1. Perhaps rest is hard not because we’re doing something wrong, but because we’re doing something right. How might rest be seen as an act of resistance?
  2. “What are the assumptions that are provoking us to perceive rest as a luxury” and not a biological necessity, as Stucky posits?
  3. A third question from Dr. Stucky: “What do we want for our young people?”
  4. What does it mean that we all need to engage in the practice of rest together? What might that look like?
