In today’s Gospel Jesus reclaims the true spirit of the Sabbath. It is more than a designated time, but an attitude and perspective. So, how can we make the unremarkable of this day a Sabbath experience of God’s presence? Author Donna Schaper writes “The sense of Sabbath lies in the moment. Such moments can include walking, gardening, homemaking, writing, any activity that steals time back from the chaos of the hectic world. Sharing grace at meals, loving the dishes we are wiping.”
