As I’ve embarked on a study of rest this year, as I count the 52 rests we have in the year, I’ve come to collect other writings on the sabbath.
I’ve shared fairly extensively some lessons I learned from Wayne Muller’s Sabbath: Finding Rest, Renewer, and Delight in Our Busy Lives. I loved the late Rachel Held Evans’ Searching for Sunday, I have a list of several other books I want to read on the subject.
My list grows longer by the day. I’ve found that if I never make a list, I never get to some of the books I really want to read. I got distracted the other day, found myself reading something I didn’t even like. I usually abandon things I don’t really like. I called my book purchase an “oopsy” and deleted it out of my library. The only reason to write those down is so I won’t buy them again.
On Sunday, I try to make room for reading, yet it never seems to happen. Here’s a short list. Go on over to my Goodreads account to see everything. (#SorryNotSorry for all the feminist history and perspectives I’m chasing. Must think about the next project.)
- Priscilla Shirer’s, Breathe: Making Room for Sabbath
- Lauren F. Winner’s, Mudhouse Sabbath (Winner‘s book, Wearing God was incredible, and she’s quickly becoming my favorite author)
- Kathleen Norris’, The Quotidian Mysteries: Laundry, Liturgy and Women’s Work (At only 88 pages I may be able to knock it out fairly quickly)
Hopefully, your list is long. May you always have a book on a lazy Sunday. ❤
