Play

wheeee“Sabbath doesn’t deny that death exists, instead, it celebrates life. It pretends that death has no power to contort joy or disfigure love. It risks the foolishness of childlike faith to overcome the bully that seeks at every moment to ruin play and malign joy.” —Dan B. Allender in Sabbath

“Of all the things Jesus meant when he exhorted his disciples to be childlike, few dare to suggest he wanted them to play more. But maybe he did.” —Mark Buchanan in The Rest of God, Restoring Your Soul by Restoring Sabbath

For more on play, see our post “Celebrate the Journey” from March 2009.
