Even God took a day to rest.

Just one day, set aside as a sacred day

A day to count the blessings, to be introspective, to appreciate the sanctity of life and all of creation

If God, in the great creation stories, took a day to rest, why then, do we believe we don’t need one?

Why then, do we trouble ourselves with the pursuit of more things?

Trying to mine for more time like mining for gold, without giving ourselves a moment to appreciate what we already have

What is it about our culture that prevents us from switching off?

Is it to maximise convenience?

Is it to maximise profit?

Are we too afraid to sit in silence, to be alone, just for one day?

Are we somehow greater than God?

He took a day, but we somehow don't need to!?!

The point is, nature has a certain rhythm to it, a flow.
