Sabbath. Poets. Wendell Berry.

Here’s a post about Sabbath, Poets, and Wendell Berry.

I have been trying to understand and practice Sabbath much more than ever.  It’s not just about rest.  It’s about cultivating the practice of being with God.  The writer says it’s also about justice.

I’m also learning that poets are true geniuses.  They see and say things that most don’t see or say.

That could be a long time.’
I will tell you a further mystery,’ he said. ‘It may take longer.’
Wendell Berry, Jayber Crow
