Spiritual practice for this week based on “Why We Rest on the Sabbath”

Ask yourself:

– What is my work?  What is my productivity?

– What does it look like for me to follow God’s rhythm for Sabbath rest from that work?

Find your Sabbath & rest this week.

If you’ve got something to share with SOMA’s community by way of prayer request or a call for help from the body, let me know and I’ll put those here.

Tyler recently found out that he has arthritis in his lower back. Please pray for his healing and pain management.
