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.

  1. Rest & God

A Great Daily Reminder to Rest

Over the pandemic, my husband and I realized that I struggle with rest. Relaxing does not come natural to me. Even in the most beautiful settings in Big Sur, I had anxiety. Towards Rest has created a new daily routine where we sit in silence and learn new ways to appreciate God's creation, lean into His word and press pause, without guilt. It is an incredible feeling that we look forward to sharing with friends and family.

Thankful for Alabaster!

Alabaster Co is a blessing. I have four books from Alabaster, and they are beautiful, well made, and well written. My wife and I are beginning to give Alabaster books as gifts because we want to share this blessing with others.
