A Sabbatical Reflection on Sabbath Rest

“A week is not complete until there is rest in it.” That articulation of the concept of Sabbath marks the beginning of a profound new reality for the Rev. Dorisanne Cooper. It is a reality not once achieved and forever held, but a new awareness of the importance of rest that is purely rest. It is also a commitment to begin again the intentional practice of rest each time it slip away. Read this inspirational reflection on the importance of practicing a Sabbath pace in life and ministry.

Dorisanne Cooper describes her exploration of spiritual and physical practices that would provide a nurturing rhythm to her ministry now and into the future.  Rev. Dorisanne Cooper
