Sabbath and Culture – Walter Brueggemann

… Sabbath is a school for our desires, an expose and critique of the false¬†desires that focus on idolatry and greed that have immense power for us. When we do not pause for Sabbath, these false desires take power over us. But Sabbath is the chance for self-embrace of our true¬†identity.
