Week 2 Green Church-Sabbath Week 2 Green Church-Sabbath Presentation Transcript

  • Green Church Summer 2010
  • Sabbath and Snow Days "Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates. 11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. God commands us to rest and to let the earth to rest!
  • Is Sabbath Part of Your Life? •I take Sabbath time every week. Time apart is important. •I take some down time now and then. •Vacations are my Sabbath. •Sabbath is overrated. I like staying busy. •Who has time to rest? I will sleep when I die.
  • Exodus 16:9-30 teaches us • God provides in unexpected ways (manna) just as we need him to. • Don't hoard or things will go rotten • Rest on the seventh day, just as God rested. If it's good enough for God it should be good enough for us to do!
  • Table Discussion • Share your idea of Sabbath and tradition • Is Sabbath still important? • How has Sabbath changed over the last 30-40 years? • Discuss how Sabbath can help the earth rest.
  • Field Trip Planned! • July 22nd at 10:30 am • Sonoco Recycling 111 S. Rogers Lane • Tour is 1 hour and if interest we will go to lunch nearby • Parking is limited so they ask that we carpool
  • Sabbath Ideas for us • Seek rest from daily occupation • Share with others in worship • Take time with God’s word • Engage in acts of compassion • Enjoy activities that refresh and renew the spirit
  • Sabbath Ideas for the earth • Don’t turn on lights, TV or computer for a day • Bike or walk to church • Avoid pre-packaged foods. Eat leftovers on Sunday! • Don’t use disposable products for the day (juice boxes, paper plates, plastic forks, fast food)
  • Sabbath • Sabbath-keeping reconnects us with our purpose.. • A day to simplify and make do with less.
