Sabbath: An Ancient Practice Meets the Modern World Film Screening

Thursday, February 1, 2024; 1:00 PM or 6:30 PM


Sabbath An Ancient Practice Meets The Modern World Film Screening (400 × 250 Px)


Sabbath—religiously mandated rest—has ethical and spiritual implications for the whole
human family. Come enjoy and learn from a documentary by Martin Doblmeier recently
released by Journey Films called SABBATH.

Told as a collection of short stories, SABBATH explores the history of one of the world’s most important spiritual practices and its timeless relevance for a stressed-out, modern world.
From the Biblical accounts of Creation, to the Ten Commandments, to the Puritans landing in the New World, to the contemporary practice of a “tech-sabbath” SABBATH ties together our
collective history, our health practices, our response to God’s invitation and the search for a
more sustainable way of life.

A brief discussion will follow each showing of the film. A study guide will also be available.

We encourage you to practice your own Sabbath by making a private retreat at Siena Retreat Center, this weekend or another. Learn more here or by contacting Nikki Madisen at [email protected].
