I want to commend to you the latest episode of the Spiritual Life & Leadership podcast from Markus Watson. In this episode Markus interviews A.J. Swoboda and discusses sabbath.

The remarkable, and important exchange comes early in the conversation when Swoboda talks about how sometimes sabbath undoes us, which is the point to get us to hear God and submit yet again to his way.

Our old normal left no margin. Constant noise, busy, full calendars. Never quiet, never just listening.

Perhaps then this pandemic is meant to undo us, so that we will find space to hear from the Lord again, to desire it. To truly rest not just metaphorically rest. I know it has been that for me. And I want more.

Grab the podcast wherever you listen to such things. And pursue sabbath.
