Sabbath: Restoration, Delight, and Justice in Everyday Life
Start Date: Mar 03, 2021
This course explores the rich theme of Sabbath in Scripture. We will begin in the Old Testament and move our way through Scripture to gain an understanding of how practices of Sabbath bring about flourishing for all of creation. We will discover that Sabbath is directly linked to restoration, delight, and justice in the biblical texts. The course will conclude with reflections on how embracing Sabbath living in the present can bring about a more joyful and just world for ourselves, others, and all of creation.
Wednesday nights, 6:30-7:30pm CT

From Paul Eddy: Stina was a part of Woodland Hills for several years, and she is currently a colleague of mine at Bethel University. She regularly teaches a version of this class at Bethel, and the students who have taken this class literally rave about it! In this class, Stina combines deep biblical insight with practical spiritual insights. I’m really excited that she is able to bring this class for the first time to our Woodland Hills community!
