Sabbath School for a New Generation

Among Seventh Day Adventists, Sabbath School is a time for discussion and learning. It is the belief of this site that Sabbath School should be an exciting venue for the discussion of new ideas, instead of rehashing old arguments. So welcome to a virtual Sabbath School, a Sabbath School for a new generation.

Sabbath

This past week, I briefly saw on the Today show a discussion about the increased stress people have on the weekends. Unfortunately, I don't have a link. One of the most important concepts in the Seventh Day Adventist church is the Sabbath. It is also misunderstood, and I think that is partially our fault. Typically it is presented as another requirement, especially when "mark of the beast" talk starts creeping in. Sabbath really should be understood as a gift to us, a day of rest. The Sabbath is the one day a week where I can do absolutely nothing and not feel guilty at all. I try not to even think about work or school, although it can be hard at times. Most of Christianity no longer celebrates any Sabbath (whether it be on Saturday or Sunday.) So this weekend, take a break enjoy the Sabbath. You won't regret it.
