Practicing Sabbath

A shared journey to discover God's work in our lives.

Sabbath is an essential ancient practice -- a weekly day of rest to orient our body and soul to live life to the full.

In this 4 month cohort, we will meet monthly to explore the practice of Sabbath together. We will learn together through the writings of wise guides and the experiences of one another. Our hope is that we will come away with new friendships, healthier rhythms and a more personal experience of Jesus.

I’ve gotten something helpful out of every meeting we’ve had and [they] have been really great. They have been a huge answer to prayer and a catalyst for growth in the spiritual season that I am in. Thank you!!

Cohort Schedule

Practicing Sabbath meets four times over three months covering the topics below. Each meeting will include a time for teaching about Sabbath alongside a time of shared reflection about our experiences.

  • We sabbath because of a good God
  • We sabbath within a good creation
  • We sabbath toward a good life
  • We sabbath as a good witness

Specific days and times will be scheduled to best accommodate all participants based on availability.

John Chandler's cohorts are a helpful means to explore ancient rhythms and spiritual practices to nourish our souls for today. If you are seeking practical guidance to connect with God in the context of a friendly online community, look no further - this is the one!

I am currently gathering interest for the next cohort.

Please use this form to pre-register. Once there is enough interest, I will do my best to find a time that will accommodate all participants based on availability.
