  • Active Waiting | The Listening Post
    challenge and test our faith Jesus mentions things like wars and earthquakes and persecution and snake oil salesmen If we are not anchored in our relationship with Jesus if we don t see hear or feel what God does through his Spirit we would be frightened to think where has God gone off to or whether Jesus was pulling our leg He doesn t even tell us much about what we are watching and waiting for or when it will happen Just about the only thing he says is it will happen when it happens and he will come with it But he does tell us how to watch wait and prepare It s not passive watching like the way we watch TV It s active waiting like the way a firefighter or emergency staff trains and prepares and waits to spring into action Jesus says we watch wait and prepare for his return by learning to love and serve the world as his agents of blessing This is how we prepare for what s coming More here About Nick Pastor of Faithwerks Church in Vancouver BC View all posts by Nick This entry was posted in Uncategorized Bookmark the

  • Sabbath: Making Space For God And Life | The Listening Post
    week like good children We are children with a heavenly father creatures with a God In a properly ordered world children and creatures find their security and livelihood from someone else not from their own industry and work ethic The Sabbath is an intentional re calibration of our centre on God as our source of security and livelihood And along the way we also re centre our souls on things that really matter our faith people we love play and leisure that keep us creative and human The Sabbath is the antidote to the pressures of a self made world which compels us to empire build hoard and trample for our own survival The Sabbath is also the way to safeguard from the tyrannical nature of work Ex slaves may be lured into thinking that hard work is the way to keep from becoming slaves again only to end up enslaving themselves Ex slaves having escaped the structure provided by the one holding they whip have a way of finding comfort in new slave masters The Sabbath is a weekly practice of personhood we do not live for work as slaves do And if we are prone to forget that on the weekdays the Sabbath is a day to correct the slave mindset But the Sabbath is not to be confused with a day off Rather it is a day on It is the day when we practice being fully alive in the life God created us to live enjoying the things God gives us for pleasure At the end of the Sabbath we re enter our work life allowing our Sabbatical mindset to overflow into the rest of our week Our work may wear us down But we know within six days there will be the opportunity again to re centre So goes the rhythm of life as a creature loved by God living outside of paradise And the Sabbath is not so much taking time off as it is honouring time Everyone gets the same time in a day and no one knows how much time they have left On the Sabbath we practice treating time as a gift we treasure rather than a commodity we exploit Unlike the Jewish Sabbath which is sundown Friday to sundown Saturday the Christian Sabbath can be any day that works for you It begins at bedtime and ends at bedtime one day later as a reminder that when wake up on Sabbath day the day is already half over that the world has gotten along just fine without us while we slept Four things we need for a Sabbatical strategy a plan and a place for prayer and play Besides not working the Sabbatical plan is your own personal declaration of independence If you feel enslaved to something the Sabbath is 24 hours where you are set free from your vices with God s help For example someone who watches a lot of TV can declare their independence by switching off
