Welcome to the Society of Saint John the Evangelist

Sabbath

Sabbath-keeping is a resistance movement, and it’s very counter-cultural. Sabbath-keeping is a resistance to the clutter, the noise, the advertising, the busyness, and the “virtual living” that sucks the life out of our lives. Sabbath-keeping is a resistance to constant production, and work, and accumulation. It may be the most difficult of the Ten Commandments to keep, and it may also be the most important.

-Br. Curtis Almquist, SSJE

Sabbath-keeping is crucial to our life as Christians. In September, our offering “Brother, Give Us a Word” will begin taking a Sabbath on Sundays. We hope that this weekly pause in our messages will offer a gentle reminder to pause in your own life.
