When was the last time that you really rested? When did you last “get off the grid” or completely and totally “shut-down”? The ideas and concepts of sabbath, sabbatical and rest may seem like foreign concepts to you and me or something that we absolutely can’t do in our current place in the journey or station in life.

In today’s From the Touchline episode, Rev Brad reflects on his upcoming, month-long sabbatical and some of his own struggles that he has encountered in trying to take a sabbatical. He looks at the way that God has setup and designed human beings in their need for sabbath rest.

Notable mentions in today’s podcast:

— Scripture: Exodus 20:8-11, NIV; Exodus 23:10-11, NIV; Matthew 11:28, NIV

— Books: Adele Ahlberg Calhoun, Spiritual Disciplines Handbook
