Kenny Benge preached a sermon entitled “Sabbath: Our Need for Rhythms of Work and Rest” based on Exodus 16:13-30 on September 24, 2011. There is a lot of baggage around the word Sabbath—in Jesus day many had reduced Sabbath observance to a task—a work to be performed, but the rhythms of work and rest were established by God at Creation, and they are fundamental to human flourishing.  To practice a Sabbath is to honor the body’s need for rest, the spirit’s need for replenishment, and the soul’s need to delight itself in God and His creation for their own sake
