By the seventh day God had finished the work God had been doing; so on the seventh day God rested from all the divine work. —Genesis 2:2

The purpose of recreation is to create a Sabbath of the soul. We need time to evaluate what we have done in the past. Like God we must ask if what we spend our lives doing is really “good” for anyone. For me? For the people who will come after me? For the world in which I live right now?  —Joan Chittister, Illuminated Life

Give me a good sabbath, O God, where I can remember your good creation, and see again how I fit in. Let my inherent worth, my inherent purpose, my deepest sense of self find your goodness reflected within, naturally and with that spark of possibility bubbling up. Amen.  —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
