Sabbath and Death

"Sabbath and death are, after all, an acceptance of what's left undone in order to lean into that which transcends.  Letting go on a day of rest is to trade chaos for peace; letting go of the lives we've known is to trade the temporary for eternity.  In both, we draw nearer to God."
J. Dana Trent, "My mother's last sabbath," Christian Century, August 14, 2019
