Practicing Sabbath Posted July 2
As you read this, I will be far away in the United Kingdom (hopefully) resting and enjoying my vacation. I will also be thinking deeply about Sabbath as a gift from God and as a spiritual discipline that is essential to my own personal growth as a disciple.
The United Methodist Church is an 11-million-strong global church that opens hearts, opens doors and opens minds through active engagement with our world. John Wesley and the early Methodists placed primary emphasis on Christian living, on putting faith and love into action. This emphasis on what Wesley referred to as "practical divinity" has continued to be a hallmark of United Methodism today.
The United Methodist Committee on Relief is a global humanitarian aid organization of the United Methodist Church that is serving in over 80 countries.
