John Mark’s Sabbath Practice: Stop Worrying, Stop Working, Stop Wanting
ie. When negative conversation topics come up, we set them aside for the day and save it for another day. No buying or selling – it’s a day to enjoy what we have and give thanks for it. No laundry or mowing – we say yes to relationships, good food, time together, rest, joy, novels, poetry, couple time, etc.
Quotes from John Mark in the episode:
“Ideas have to get into our bodies through habits or spiritual disciplines”
“The goal of spiritual disciplines is to live a life of restfulness, gratitude and delight and relational connection, a real sense of the spirit of God transforming us into a person of compassion and love. This is the goal, sabbath is the means.”
“Is the way I’m living going to turn me into the kind of person I want before God? If the answer is no, the time is always now to make whatever drastic decions need to be made to alter my life to become a person of love and joy and peace.”
“How is hurry robbing me of my capacity for love and joy and peace and enjoy God and His Kingdom, and what would it look like to slow down and live a different kind of life?”
“Am I becoming the kind of person I want to become?”
