Many of us wrapped the sabbath in old papers, put it away on a shelf in our mental closet, and forgot about it. If we think of it at all, we remember Blue Laws and multiple church services and family regulations, so we are exceedingly reluctant to open up sabbath for another look. Others of us merely use the sabbath as a therapeutic rest period for recovering our strength so that we can be more productive.

Our contributors invite us to open the sabbath package. But be prepared for some jolts--seeing sabbath as a gift instead of just a law, as "resting from our own works" and giving "due place to God's works," and as a call to justice and compassion rather than apathy.

Christian Reflection is an ideal resource for discipleship training in the church.
