Beguine Again: Sabbath: Entering into Holy Time

Original post at

A recent note went out titled “Class Enrollment and Schedule” or some close approximation thereof. It was not supposed to go! Aaah, the human element of technology. Please replace it with this one. :)  And please go to the blog page to enroll. Shalom!

Sabbath, the call to Holy Time, is a practice that goes back to the Ten Commandments of the Ancient Israelites: “Remember the Sabbath Day and Keep it Holy.” Even further, it stretches back to our story of creation in Genesis, “And God rested on the seventh day.”

Starts: November 22, 2014

Ends:  January 9, 2015

Cost:  Right fit payment

This is a seven-week look at Sabbath from a Christian perspective. We will explore Sabbath as a rhythm of life that fosters care for creation, rebalancing our relationship with work, grounding Sabbath in biblical teaching and tradition, connecting Sabbath to justice, Sabbath’s roots in community, infusing Sabbath with joy, placing Sabbath at the heart of loving God and neighbor, and tying Sabbath to the Lord’s Day. Although it is from a Christian perspective, we would greatly encourage others to participate and to share how Holy Time informs your own spiritual path. We honor diversity, ecumenism, and inter-faith dialogue (or non-faith).

The class is a video format. Each video is about 20 minutes long and will be available online. A link will be sent to participants. There will be an online discussion group in Facebook. A “Secret” group that will allow for conversation to develop without the whole world listening in. This allows opportunities to participate as you feel able, where you are able, as you are able.

We will receive wisdom from renowned scholars and sociologists as we delve into the practice of creating Holy Time with this exclusive curriculum developed by Katie Ladd at The Well.

The curriculum features Walter Brueggemann, Norman Wirzba, Ellen Davis, Dorothy Bass, Robin Jensen, Lauren Winner, Amy-Jill Levine, Jack Sasson, Ched Myers, Brian McLaren, and Bill McKibben. Each session is accompanied by a downloadable handout that defines terms, contains a bio of each participant, provides relevant biblical information, and suggests questions for conversation.
