"Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy."

Yeah, right. Sabbath- keeping seems quaint in our 24/7, twenty-first century world. Life often feels impossibly full, what with work, to-do lists, kid activities, chores, and errands. And laundry... always and forever laundry. But the Sabbath isn't just one of the ten commandments; it is a delight that can transform the other six days of the week. Join one family's quest to take Sabbath to heart and change their frenetic way of living by keeping a Sabbath day each week for one year. With lively and compelling prose, MaryAnn McKibben Dana documents their experiment with holy time as a guide for families of all shapes and sizes. Tips are included in each chapter to help make your own Sabbath experiment successful.

MaryAnn McKibben Dana is pastor of Idylwood Presbyterian Church, a small and growing congregation in Falls Church, Virginia. She is a frequent retreat and workshop leader and has written for a variety of books and publications, including Feasting on the Word, Presbyterians Today, and Religion Dispatches. Her book, Sabbath in the Suburbs: A Family s Experiment with Holy Time, will be released by Chalice Press later this year. MaryAnn is married to Robert Dana and is mother to three children ages 9, 6, and 4.
