#5: Sabbath

July 3, 2022
Pastor Kenneth Price
Wyatt and Kylie Whitman

We are looking at the summer of 2022, assessing our rhythms, and looking to address areas where we made need to press the 'pause' button. Where we need to stop and say, "Jesus, I need you in this space." This podcast is a call to the heart of our people to say "how can we be more intentional?" It's through rhythms and practices that we want to encourage you to follow Jesus's heart in a way you haven't before. And ultimately to live a more intentional and Christ-filled life.

Moments To Remember

  • Holy: to be set apart

Other Info

  • Having a Sabbath day set aside as a family doesn't always mean being together the whole time--aloneness with the Lord can very much be a part of that time.

  • Develop Sabbath choreography (as discussed in The Rest of God by Mark Buchanan)
