I am in the process of buying a new cooker, and much to my surprise you can now get ones with a ‘Sabbath’ setting – presumably allowing users to set timers for a few days to allow things to cook without any inputs from people, and therefore complying with Sabbath rules. This left me thinking – should we have a Sabbath setting too? Perhaps a default where we don’t do work, perhaps leave the laptop closed for 24 hours. Or as a colleague said to me today – perhaps don’t do any chores as a simple reminder that everything necessary is already done in Christ. We don’t need to do anything. Why not give it a go. I hope you enjoyed the mailing, back issues available here.
