What do we mean when we suggest that this is a year of ‘Sabbath’ for YCC?
We mean that our primary spiritual focus for this year should be on ‘breathing in’ more than ‘breathing out’. We mean consistently giving priority to practices and activities that are life-giving for us, both personally and together.
We are not proposing that we can or should stop serving in all the areas to which we are currently committed. For most of us, this is neither possible nor desirable. We simply want to help each other find ways to rebalance our lives, and especially our walk with Jesus, after a time that has proved very draining for many.
This applies to us as individual disciples of Jesus, as groups and in friendship circles, and for us corporately as a church.
