Horizons Bible Study for 2022-2023
“Celebrating Sabbath: Accepting God’s Gift of Rest and Delight”

By Carol M. Bechtel
Suggestions for Leaders by Laura Mariko Cheifetz

In the nine lessons of this Bible study—with passages from
Genesis, Exodus, Deuteronomy, Isaiah, Matthew, Luke, and Acts—we’ll consider Sabbath

as a celebration, not a day of dreary formality
as God’s intent for all of creation that includes busy women too
as one day of the week, perhaps a Sunday
as a time to surrender unhealthy striving and frantic busyness, and instead trust that God will provide
as a reminder that life is precious and working too much is against God’s plans for our precious lives
as a day devoted to community and justice and not exclusively to self-care.
Ultimately, Sabbath reminds us to honor God who honors us by giving us a day each week to reset our pace, our priorities, and our lives.
