EHA Podcast: Sabbath as Resistance
Walter Brueggemann, in Sabbath as Resistance: Saying No to the Culture of Now, writes, “(Sabbath) is resistance because it is a visible insistence that our lives are not defined by . . . production and consumption of goods.” There is a way in which keeping Sabbath frees us from the anxiety that creeps in and says, “But it’s not finished yet! There’s more to do!” Sabbath-keeping helps us resist grounding ourselves in measuring our worth by the work of our hands, or in multitasking, drivenness, or even moving too fast.
In this bonus pod, Carolyn Carney sits down with activist, author, and Area Ministry Director Jonathan Walton from NYC.
