Wayne Muller is the founder of Bread for the Journey, a nationwide community-based philanthropic organization, and a senior scholar at the Fetzer Institute. In this 90-minute audio presentation, he talks about the prescription for sacred rest that is part of all the world's religions. Muller uses inspiring stories, poems, and meditations to illustrate the multidimensional benefits of taking a Sabbath moment, a Sabbath hour, a Sabbath day.
Thomas Merton once stated: "To allow ourselves to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to succumb to violence." The collective mantra of our time "I'm so busy" is toxic. Better we make a place in our lives for refreshing our souls and rejoicing in all the blessings from God. Muller presents practices and exercises from Christianity, Buddhism, and Judaism that can restore the sacred rhythm of rest and delight into our lives.
