Rest is a culturally unfamiliar biblical mandate. Americans get fewer paid vacation days than almost any other developed country. Oddly enough, Americans also leave more accrued vacation days unused each year, as well. Our inability to rest and disconnect creates a level of unhealthiness that even our churches can't avoid. Further, hermeneutical objections to the sabbath are not doing anybody any good. Perhaps the first step to personal and corporate church health is bold, but simple.
