Dan Allender Quotes

Two Quotes by: Dan Allender of Mars Hill Graduate School, Seattle

Sabbath must be pursued with delight What intrigues, amazes, tickles your fancy, delights your senses and casts you into an entirely new and unlimited world is the raw material of Sabbath (p. 28). Sabbath then is a fiction (p. 88) a day lived as if there was no sin (p. 88) a day of curiosity, coziness, and care (p. 89). It is a party (p. 103). We are to pretend and play on Sabbath as if the new heavens and earth were here (p. 110). Such pretense will require props which could include candles, using our finest china, or rituals such as Sabbath sex or a walk in the woods (p. 131).
