Dear FLC,

With summer upon us and last Sunday’s text about the 3rd commandment, it seems fitting to remember the Sabbath. I too often do not. The Sabbath gifts us with



and growth.

These essential means to life often get minimized even as we spend wonderful time loving, serving, and sacrificing for one another. But ‘doing more’ does not lead to ‘being more.’ Just be. Take the sabbath and let your neighbor do so too.

This season and beyond, may you receive the blessings that come with routine sabbath: renewal, gratitude, and perhaps in ways hard to grasp, grace.

God’s Peace,

Pastor Stephen
