Title: Rest from Our Anxiety
Scripture: Luke 6:1-11
Speaker: Reid Kapple, ReidK@ChristCommunityKC.org


“Neurological illnesses such as depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), borderline personality disorder (BPD), and burnout syndrome mark the landscape of pathology at the beginning of the twenty-first century. They are not infections, but infractions; they do not follow from the negativity of what is immunologically foreign, but from an excess of positivity.” ― Byung-Chul Han, The Burnout Society
>> Distorting the Command of Sabbath
>> Practicing the Gift of Sabbath
“A great benefit of Sabbath keeping is that we learn to let God take care of us — not by becoming passive and lazy, but in the freedom of giving up our feeble attempts to be God in our own lives.” -Marva Dawn, Keeping the Sabbath Wholly
Work for Compensation + Rest Through Consumption = Exhaustion
Work for Contribution + Rest Through Attention = Restoration
>> Sabbath: a prepared day of rest where we focus our attention and desires upon the presence and goodness of God.
“We sell ourselves short by celebrating for celebration’s sake rather than for God's sake. The authentic call of sabbath is to enter into celebration as God intended it to be, not what we think it should be...Sabbath is about delighting in God for his sake and the sake of the world.” -AJ Swoboda, Subversive Sabbath
>> Pay Attention to God’s Presence
