Beginning last weekend, we begin a new on-going Sabbath practice to help us prepare our hearts for our gathered time of worship on Sunday. On Saturday evening as the sun sets, just as the monks would enter a time of corporate silence and repose, we as the community of Abbey Way will hold an email silence together until after worship on Sunday. What that means is that all the business of our Sunday life together including communicating absences, needing food covered, ministry team details, asking Laura about an announcement need, bringing of guests, etc. will need to be done before Saturday sundown. I think this will help us all create more interior space in our souls to focus on worship and less on the emerging details of the day. Let us enter this new spiritual practice with expectant hearts.
