Christianity and The Arts'We are desperate for rest in a culture that seems to reward only effort. We understand ourselves as overworked, but in a way we are proud of our exhaustion and our failure to honor the Sabbath.’
“These words by Donna Schaper in her new book Sabbath Keeping make a good beginning, for we are indeed deeply confused about time, bound as we are by a misguided allegiance to schedules and work that drives us beyond even fatigue to something worse, the loss of our very souls.
