How do we experience rest? Our new book explores this question and its qualities for our lives, rhythms, and conventions today. 

God rests. From the very beginning, rest is marked with sacred significance among all of creation. God calls individuals and communities alike into lives, rhythms, and conventions of rest. More than a mere afternoon nap, rest is a holy orientation and divine chronology that completes life as we know it. Just as God rests, we rest with God.

This book is meant to move us towards rest, into recovering its wisdom and consequence in our lives. As we contemplate and practice these many qualities of rest, may our personal lives be rejuvenated, our families strengthened, and our communities reoriented towards justice and peace. And may we rest with God. Amen.

Beautiful book

I love the texture of the book as well as the photographs. The overall hues and quality of the photos are soothing and pleasing to look at. I love that these photos can be used to show God’s beauty. Also, the contents of this book is what I’ve been needing for a while but only recently realized.
