Sabbath as Resistance: Saying No to the Culture of Now.

Ever feel like life’s spinning at a million miles an hour, leaving you somewhat disoriented and drained? 

We’re here for you. And what better way to recharge and reconnect with what truly matters—God and others—than joining a supportive community of women for a 6-week Summer Bible study?

Join us for a transformative journey through Walter Brueggemann’s profound work, “Sabbath as Resistance: Saying No to the Culture of Now.”

It’ll be like a gentle hand guiding us back to who God always intended us to be, back to a place of peace and purpose amidst the chaos.

In a world that constantly demands our attention and pulls us in a million different directions, the concept of Sabbath offers a revolutionary counter-narrative. It beckons us to slow down, rest, and reclaim our time and humanity in a culture that glorifies busyness and productivity above all else.

But Sabbath isn’t just about taking a day off; it’s about resistance. It’s about saying no to the relentless hustle and bustle of modern life and saying yes to what truly matters. It’s about nurturing our souls, fostering community, and reconnecting with the sacred rhythms of creation.

From June 6 to July 11, every Thursday evening from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, we’ll gather to dive deep into God’s Word about the significance of Sabbath, sharing divine revelation and life stories in light of Brueggemann’s wisdom, and supporting each other along the way.

No matter how shallow or deep you consider yourself to wade in the waters of spirituality, you’re welcomed.

Join us and bring friends along as we connect with God and one another as we rediscover and, in some cases, discover for the first time the beauty of slowing down in a world that never stops.

So, if you’re nodding along thinking, “Yes, that’s exactly what I need,” then, you’re in the right place.
