An Inspiring, Practical Guide to Finding Rest and Getting Closer to God Sabbath-keeping not only brings physical refreshment, it restores the soul. God commands us to "remember the Sabbath," but is it realistic in today's fast-paced culture? In this warm and helpful book, Shelly Miller dispels legalistic ideas about Sabbath and shows how even busy people can implement a rhythm of rest into their lives--whether for an hour, a morning, or a whole day. With encouraging stories from people in different stages in life, Miller shares practical advice for having peaceful, close times with God. You will learn simple ways to be intentional about rest, ideas for tuning out distractions and tuning in God, and even how meals and other times with friends and family can be Sabbath experiences. Ultimately, this book is an invitation to those who long for rest but don't know how to make it a reality. Sabbath is a gift from God to be embraced, not a spiritual hoop to jump through.

In today's world, with its relentless emphasis on success and productivity, we have lost the necessary rhythm of life, the balance between work and rest. Constantly striving, we feel exhausted and deprived in the midst of great abundance. We long for time with friends and family, we long for a moment to ourselves. Millennia ago, the tradition of Sabbath created an oasis of sacred time within a life of unceasing labor. Now, in a book that can heal our harried lives, Wayne Muller, author of the spiritual classic How, Then, Shall We Live?, shows us how to create a special time of rest, delight, and renewal--a refuge for our souls. We need not even schedule an entire day each week. Sabbath time can be a Sabbath afternoon, a Sabbath hour, a Sabbath walk. With wonderful stories, poems, and suggestions for practice, Muller teaches us how we can use this time of sacred rest to refresh our bodies and minds, restore our creativity, and regain our birthright of inner happiness.

Ausbruch aus dem kommunikativen Chaos Das Bedürfnis nach Stille ist etwas zutiefst Menschliches – davon zeugen spirituelle Praktiken in allen Religionen. Aber in einer Welt, in der rund um die Uhr auf allen Kanälen kommuniziert und informiert wird, scheint es unmöglich, einfach einmal nichts zu sagen. Die Schriftstellerin Anne D. LeClaire hat sich das Schweigen zurückerobert. Sie ermutigt jeden dazu, sich solche Auszeiten vom Alltag zu gönnen, um zu innerer Ruhe und neuer Kraft zu finden. Es war im Januar 1992, als Anne D. LeClaire beschloss, einen ganzen Tag lang nichts zu sagen. Dies ist inzwischen zu ihrem festen Ritual geworden: Zwei Tage pro Monat zieht sich die Schriftstellerin zurück aus dem Dauerrauschen des Alltags, um zu schweigen – auch wenn Familie und Freunde anfangs mit Befremden reagierten. In ihrem Buch nimmt sie uns mit auf ihre Reise in die Stille. Sie zeigt, welche Bereicherung Zeiten des selbstgewählten Schweigens für unser Leben sein können: Weil wir lernen, Grenzen zu ziehen, Kontrolle abzugeben und den Dingen und Ereignissen die richtige Bedeutung beizumessen. Weil wir erfahren, was es bedeutet, wirklich zuzuhören – nicht nur unseren Mitmenschen, auch unserer inneren Stimme. Weil uns Schweigen schöpferisch macht. Weil wir so einen neuen Zugang zu anderen und zur Natur finden. Und weil durch den zeitweisen Rückzug aus der Welt eine neue, tiefere Bindung zu ihr entsteht. In einer poetischen Mischung aus Autobiografie und philosophischer Reflexion schildert Anne D. LeClaire das Schweigen als einen großen Lehrmeister des Lebens. • Das Bedürfnis nach Ruhe und Rückzug aus dem lauten Alltag ist bei allen Menschen groß • Die Kommunikationsflut und wie man ihr entkommt • Ein ermutigender Appell – poetisch und praktisch zugleich

Many of us are bent on producing and achieving, striving and hustling for our self-worth. Beneath this relentless drive churns a deep yearning to uncover our true selves and our purpose in this world. Gardeners familiar with the technique called "pruning open" know that the secret to healthy plants and trees lies in subtracting rather than adding. Similarly, we begin to flourish as we let go of our false selves and allow God to prune us open. With powerful stories and revealing research, Michelle DeRusha helps readers: - learn how to declutter their hearts, minds, and souls through the practice of directed rest - let go of busyness, striving, and false identities to embrace their truest selves as beloved children of God - grow in their relationships, vocations, communities, and intimacy with God True You offers those exhausted by the pervasive do-more, be-more messages of our society a path toward rest, renewal, and, ultimately, wholeness in Christ.
