Why is it "so hard" to serve God these days? Church workers suffer from low morale, while Christians of all stripes struggle to find their way in a culture fixated on sexuality, violence, and wealth. In "Keeping the Sabbath Wholly," Marva Dawn introduced the vital Sabbath aspects of "resting, ceasing, feasting, "and "embracing." Now, in "The Sense of the Call," she expands these into a way of life for serving God and the Kingdom every single day of the week.
A Sabbath way of life, Dawn asserts, consists of "resting" in the Kingdom's grace, "ceasing" by grace attitudes and actions that hinder the Kingdom, "feasting" so as to radiate the gracefull splendor of the Kingdom, and "embracing" the Kingdom's gracious purposes. To this end, Dawn teaches skills such as learning to rest in prayer, saying no to busyness, enjoying the body, and embracing the cost of living as a Christian disciple.
Frank yet compassionate, "The Sense of The Call" will guide all who serve, whether in the Church or world into a more restful, joy-full life of trust in God.
