Rev. Megan Snell

Who in your life needs more rest? More renewal? More Sabbath?
What is keeping them from enjoying that time of renewal?
How can you help others to have access to Sabbath?

From the sermon:
Who decides who deserves access to Sabbath? 

What factors determine who among our society receive the experience of Sabbath and who do not? Are some people more worthy of that seventh day of rest and time with self and the sacred? 

The thing about looking into our faith critically and thinking about the spiritual practices (such as the keeping of Sabbath) that are the building blocks of a lived-out Christian faith is that sooner or later-- we will run up against the issue of justice. Justice-- intricately linked with worthiness. 

Who is worthy of Sabbath? 

Is it not a natural extension of our Christian practice of Sabbath to advocate that all people should have access to rest? 

Preacher: Rev. Megan Snell, MDiv., Pastor, Nahant Village Church (UCC)

Scripture: James 2:14-19
