Today, we’re talking all about rest. In a fast paced society, it’s not something that most of us are very good at—and having to slow down because of the COVID-19 shelter-at-home order has really begun to reveal that.

In this episode, we explore God’s design for rest, which we first find in Genesis 2. We also discuss commandment for Israel to rest—one day out of seven, and one year out of seven. We talk about how they failed to live up to that calling, how it ended up hurting them in the long run, and how we aren’t so different.

We also talk about some tactical tips for learning to rest well, including how to schedule it into your weekly and monthly rhythms.
