Permanent URL:


Sabbath is God’s design for how humanity is to spend its time, with theological, ethical, and sociological implications. That is the focus of this doctoral project, grounded in the application of research at a local United Methodist Church. The nature of sabbath itself, from a theological and biblical standpoint, is explored, along with standards for its practice. The paper then explores the application of that research on a particular congregation. Reflections and future directions conclude this paper’s content.
