These notes set up a discussion for Ministers and church leaders on issues to do with both ‘work’ and ‘rest’. They highlight the need for greater understanding of practical issues that arise for a Minister’s ‘day off’ and a congregational leader’s time outside working hours.
The following are covered:
- Key principles (such as Sabbath, rhythm, pride, sloth)
- What is ‘work’ for different groups of church members?
- What is ‘rest’ (issues of sleep, relaxation, recreation, routines, relationships, discipleship)?
- Issues for time ‘off’ and holidays
Each section suggests discussion questions; the notes are designed to bring out the issues for a group to work at more than to provide easy answers. This topic is rarely shared in this way.
