Soul Tending Journey Into the Heart of SabbathJanuary 29, 2018 By Collegeville Institute Anita Amstutz Nashville, Tennessee, Skylight Paths Publishing, 2018 Visit this title on the publisher's website. Resident Scholar Fall 2016, Writing Workshop Summer 2015 We live in hungry times. There is economic uncertainty, fear, violence, division, and social chaos. What is needed for times such as these is a heart full of courage and wisdom grounded in compassion and resilience. For this, we can turn to one of the practices that for so many centuries nourished people of faith through incredibly difficult life circumstances and service. Traditionally it was a communal gathering time of rest, ritual, and prayer. It is Sabbath keeping. In Soul Tending, Anita offers field notes and a road map from her own Sabbath keeping practice for the 21st century — a practice rooted in tradition but whose tenets can be applied to practices fit for our present hectic and troubling world.
