Are these lyrics from a Simon and Garfunkle song from the 70s? Yes, but also it is the new mantra of a movement to save time, lives, and even democracy so says it's proponent. I couldn't agree more! This is definitely an important topic for our Pastoral Leadership Team and our Wellness Ministry leader to find some creative ways to spread this message and implement it.
I guess one of the primary ways would be to encourage/reward people to "take a sabbath"! Whether it be on a Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. or a Sunday morning at 10 a.m., take a pause and take time out for yourself with a large or small group of others at Open Circle!
