“Ethics becomes a luxury as the speed of our daily life increases.”
– Judith Shulevitz talking to Ezra Klein (Episode: Sabbath and the Art of Rest)
This conversation on the Ezra Klein Show about the Sabbath offered so many new insights and convictions. A few of my takeaways:
- We can’t practice Sabbath alone.
- Practicing Sabbath requires preparation.
- Practicing Sabbath teaches us to inhabit time more ethically, with more concern and awareness of people and relationships and love.
- Sabbath involves intentional limitations and restrictions because it is about celebration and delight and people.
