Cease Rest. Embrace. Feast. What do these words mean in our culture of busy, distracted, individualistic, and efficient? When Regent alumni Paige and Paul Gutacker took a Regent Summer course on Sabbath taught by Marva Dawn, their worlds turned upside down. They wrestled with questions like, "Why can't I rest? What if Sabbath comes before I'm not ready for it? What if I haven't earned it?" In this video, they share their journey coming to understand Sabbath and to practice its restorative rhythms discussed in Marva's book, Keeping the Sabbath Wholly. Have a look at their journey.
