“Sabbath is taking a day a week to remind myself that I did not make the world and that it will continue to exist without my efforts.
Sabbath is a day when my work is done, even if it isn’t.

Sabbath is a day when my phone is turned off, I don’t check my email, and you can’t get ahold of me.”
- Rob Bell
