Description

The most ancient of Judeo-Christian traditions can have real meaning in our hectic contemporary lives once we realize that the significance of Sabbath is our relationship with God. Kathleen Casey invites us to explore Sabbath as more than a day of rest or obligation. Discover, as she did, that Sabbath is a gift from God, a time apart from our busy everyday lives when we can get to know God, explore values, contemplate life's big questions, and express love and gratitude. In these thirteen reflections, each with scripture, a meditation activity, and meditation questions, Casey invites us explore the gifts God gives us through the celebration of Sabbath.

Praise

"Profound and practical."

"Ah, yes! This will feed you—and with appropriate food that is at once profound and practical, too."

Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Author of Everything Belongs:
The Gift of Contemplative Prayer

A pathway to greater holiness."

"In Sabbath Presence, Kathleen Casey once again provides us with a pathway to greater holiness. Each chapter opens up an actual gift, one that we receive by observing sabbath time in our lives. It is witty, deep, and profoundly helpful."
