My Own Personal Sabbath #42

Almost every Sunday since mid-May 2020 with a few exceptions, I have been taking my own personal Sabbath, where I tune out of the news and social media and turn off my ringer and all notifications on my phone. Throughout the day and/or sometimes the next day, I share what I am reading, listening to, or watching during my Sabbath.

So, today is the first Sunday of October and…

I am meditating…

…with Eve.

I am chilling…

…in The Chill Out Tent.

I am reading…

…the next in the Rabbi Small series.

So, what are you up to this fine Sunday?

I now am on Substack. Subscribe here.

  1. My Sundays are busy with student ministry so I am always late responding to these Sunday posts. I get home by 1:30pm and then I often collapse on the couch for a nap. Ha! I am still not able to walk much so the pup is not happy with me. I am about to start watching Squid Games which I’ve heard is sooooo gruesome but good. Just started Peter Heller’s new book, The Guide. I love Heller but this book hasn’t gotten great reviews so we shall see how it sits with me.


  2. Sounds like it was a nice day. I didn’t know you’d decided officially to go to Substack. I will have to check it out. Hope you and the wife are having a good week (she said as if she hasn’t been talking to the wife about planners and journals all week 😉 )


    1. I know. I know. It’s all she talks about. Planners, blah, blah, blah. 😉 But seriously, folk, The Wife and I are having a good week. Tonight we’re watching Black Widow…with wine, which ought to make it more palatable. 🙏

  3. Well, it’s Monday and your IG posts can’t be viewed because Facebook and IG are down (what a weird feeling . . . I just had an article I wanted to share on FB and realized, oops, I can’t do that). We were total bums, yesterday. I did manage to sweep the entire house and did a couple other minor chores while husband worked on the yard, but mostly I read Daphne du Maurier’s The Birds and Other Stories. Still thinking about the creepy apple tree in the third story and almost done with the book.


  4. We are having a very quiet and boring Sunday. It’s raining outside, the TV is on, I’m trying to get some blog work done and all the while feeling like I need a break. Maybe I should step out for a bit. Your Sunday sounds like a lot of fun!


  5. My plan is to read some blogs, then bake a cake for tonight’s dessert. We’re having my SIL over for dinner. If I’m lucky, I’ll have time to read a little, too. Enjoy your day, Bryan!


  6. I love that you take Sundays to “turn off” and enjoy. I should do that as I find that I get sucked into reading blogs, which leads to checking my work email, which leads to me looking up hours later and half the day has disappeared.


  7. This sounds like a fabulous way to spend a day. I think I will pay a visit to the Chill Out Tent today, too.

    And, of course, I will be reading. I’m about a hundred pages into Ruth Ozeki’s new book, The Book of Form and Emptiness.
