God calls us to come to him and find refreshment by creating times of sabbath within our lives and families. As disciples of Jesus, we need to develop the practice of sabbath by disconnecting from our work, phones, and busyness to enter intentional times of rest with God, family, and friends.
Jesus modeled a life of regularly withdrawing into places of silence and solitude for prayer and refreshment. As disciples of Jesus, we need to follow Jesus by entering into times of solitude and silence, intentionally setting aside time to withdraw from our busy, distracting world.

This week we start a new series. We'll be spending four-weeks walking through the book of Amos, focusing on how our spiritual walk with God affects our pursuit of righteous justice.
