What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

I feel like you crawled inside my mind again. I own those first two books. They're marked, starred, underlined, written all over. LOVE them. And I've been meaning to read that other one. People keep quoting him.

And Alistair Begg is my all-time favorite preacher EVER. We attended his church for a few months when we lived up near Cleveland, and I thought I'd died and gone to heaven.

I want to meet you. Sigh.

I love this topic on Sabbath. I grew up keeping Sabbath (as part of the denomination in which I was raised) but as an adult, I've found that it's important for me to relearn what it means to keep Sabbath in order to make it meaningful and not legalistic based on tradition
.
I too have read The Rest of God (LOVE his writing!) and I'm plowing through The Sabbath (it's one that you have to read slowly, in a quiet place...not something you can skim or read casually...it requires lots of brain power!). I love the analogy of entering Sabbath as if you're entering into a cathedral.

In our home I want to make Sabbath pleasing to all the senses. We started giving our 10-month-old grape juice this weekend (he only drinks water otherwise) so he can associate Sabbath with it. :-)

Add to the mix that I'm a pastor's wife and Sabbath is probably the hardest, most stressful day of the week.

Love the topic and I'm looking forward to reading the first book, hearing those sermons and, of course, the rest of your posts on the topic.

I haven't started reading it yet, but Breathe by Keri Wyatt Kent is supposed to be very good. I read about it at "Not Before 7". Here is the link to her post on the book.

wow a blog about the Sabbath and you did not mention any Seventh day Adventist resources on the Sabbath. They have many resources and have been keeping the Sabbath for over 100 years.
