The Elusive Art of Sabbath Keeping: Helping Global Workers Thrive

 Perry Bradford, Barnabas International

As mission workers we are very familiar with the Great Commission to “go and make disciples”.  That is our calling!  However, the Great Commission is hindered when the Great Commandment is disregarded. During this workshop we will consider the role that Sabbath can play in our own lives and also the lives of global workers to help sustain, strengthen and encourage their spiritual growth.  Join me, as we will explore practical ways to make Sabbath part of our daily spiritual rhythm.
