Sense of the Call by Marva Dawn

Book Description

Why is it so hard to serve God these days? Church workers suffer from low morale, while Christians of all stripes struggle to find their way in a culture fixated on sexuality, violence, and wealth. In "Keeping the Sabbath Wholly" (1989) Marva Dawn introduced the vital Sabbath aspects of resting, ceasing, feasting, and embracing. Now, in "The Sense of the Call", she expands these into a way of life for serving God and the Kingdom every single day of the week. A Sabbath way of life, Dawn asserts, consists of resting in the Kingdom's grace, ceasing by grace those attitudes and actions that hinder the Kingdom, feasting so as to radiate the grace-full splendor of the Kingdom, and embracing the Kingdom's gracious purposes. To this end Dawn teaches skills such as learning to rest in prayer, saying no to busyness, enjoying one's body as God's temple, and embracing the cost of living as a Christian disciple. Both frank and compassionate, "The Sense of the Call" will guide Christian servants into a more restful, joy-full life of trust in God.
