Ruth Haley Barton believes sabbath saved her.
In her book Embracing Rhythms of Work and Rest, Ruth traces the need for, barriers to, and beauty available in this gift. Sabbath Journal offers selected wisdom from the book, blank spaces for written responses, and fifty-two prompts to launch divine dialogue. Ruth says, "What you write here does not have to be profound; it just needs to be true. And even after you have finished reading the book, you can keep using this journal as a sacred space to 'say something true to God' as part of your sabbath practice."
As you intentionally develop the habit of pausing, use this interactive resource to reflect with Ruth at your own pace and in your own words. This journal is your next step in replenishment to guide your life's patterns.
