Podcast Interviews with Rachel
Mini-Series: The 5Rs of Sabbath Rest
Within the Dawn App, I recorded a mini-podcast series in which I discuss what it means to remember, reflect, reconnect, relax, and rejoice in your Sabbath practice.
Episode 41: Table Talk with Rachel Fahrenbach: Comparison
Bethany and I discuss how all women compare themselves to a standard, whether it is to other women, an internal measurement, or how we were raised. And, how resting with God can bring you peace, clarity, and contentment.
Episode: Rachel Fahrenbach – Identity, Purpose, Belonging and the Sabbath
We discuss what rest can do for you in all the areas of your life, and rest in the form of practicing Sabbath. Especially as it relates to the foundational areas of life: identity, purpose and belonging. When those 3 areas are healthy we get to enjoy things like peace, clarity, and joy for the journey.
Episode 21: This Mom Knows Rest
Jenn and I discuss how I learned to embrace her own uniqueness, and how it was through the most unlikely practice — learning to rest — where this happened.
Episode 21: The Importance of Sabbath
Christa and I discuss what the Sabbath is and why it is important. We also take on the biggest struggle in our busy culture of how we can intentionally begin practicing the Sabbath as an act of obedience and expect to see God’s faithfulness and blessings in our life.
The Bible Project
The BibleProject has created this wonderful video about the significance of and connection between the Sabbath, the 7th day, and Jesus’ death and resurrection.
On the BibleProject podcast, Tim Mackie and Jon Collins go deeper over 14 episodes as they discuss Sabbath rest and the appearance of the 7th day in the scriptures. It is a facinating conversation to listen in on.
The guys at the BibleProject also compiled their study notes so you can read a little more about the concept of Sabbath in the scriptures. They list their sources at the end of the document in case you want to read even more.
Books on Sabbath
This book is so enlightening! It presents the information of how our understanding of Sunday has changed over the generations simply and without an attempt to convince of a specific viewpoint.
In Sabbath, Allender builds a case for delight by looking at this day as a festival that celebrates God’s re-creative, redemptive love using four components:
- Sensual glory and beauty
- Communal feasting
Not necessarily a book about Sabbath but Bethke does dive into how our modern-day culture has divided and pulled a part our family and the importance of intentional, rhythmic practices in our lives.
