Sabbath, in 140 Characters or less

23 Jul

This weekend, our Pastor of Family Life and Evangelism, Adam Donner, will be preaching on the Sabbath.
I have the awesome task of taking his message and parallel teaching the same lesson to a group of 1st-5th graders during our 11:11am service.

As part of my homework, I decided to ask the Twitterverse if they could describe “Sabbath” in 140 characters or less:

Here were a few of your responses (I’ll choose only from the answers that can be found on the public timeline):

So, friends, would you add anything?
What do you think “taking a Sabbath rest” should look like for a 3rd grader?

Share your thoughts in the comments section!

    Sabbath in OT is a shadow of the rest that Christ gives us in Him when he died and rose again. We have that Rest in Him on a permanent basis now.

      “shadow of the rest that Christ gives us” might be a little heavy for the kiddos – but I like it! (even if it’s 145 characters)
      Thanks for sharing, Richard!

    it’s like when you get a day off from school, but instead of spending it w/the tv, you get to spend it w/god. doing what? anything that makes you think of him!

    how many characters is that? i don’t twitter.

    did you sit there and count them? if so, just another reason why i don’t twitter. 🙂 flattered, tho, that you would bother. there should be a character-counting app…
