An Invitation to Sabbath Life:
We believe that God made the world and all of creation for the purpose of delight: God’s and ours. After God created in six days the beautiful and well-ordered world, God created Sabbath, a time for ceasing from work to delight in all that had been created.
To practice Sabbath is to enter into the joy of God, who responded to creation by naming it “very good.” Sabbath teaches us the practices of celebration, attentiveness, and delight.
Pastors Beth and Doug Kearney, along with Pastor Mary Canniff-Kuhn, invite you to ten days of practicing Sabbath, on the first Mondays (usually) March-November 2022.
Through work in a food pantry garden, worship around the table, shared silence, rest, and reflection together, you will have the opportunity to order your life, renew your energy and passion for ministry, and strengthen your leadership through a community of practice. Enjoy the peace of Lutheridge and Sabbath Soil, the Kearney’s home there, and leave with a bag of local vegetables, with recipes.
To learn more and to register visit Sabbath Life—Western NC.
Registration is limited to an 8-person cohort and registration will close AFTER MARCH 7, 2022.
