Week 1 - Sabbath as Gift and Command
    Video  |  Presentation

This four-week series offers an in-depth exploration of the biblical concept of Sabbath. Through interactive lectures and guided conversations we will consider the purpose, place, and practice of Sabbath in faith formation and the Christian life. In doing so, we will come to understand the ancient practice of Sabbath keeping as more than just a good idea for managing busyness. Rather, we will discover Sabbath as both a disruptive and daring invitation to think differently about holiness, our schedules, the pace of our lives, and when (not just where) we encounter God.

Dr. Ryan Bonfiglio serves at Emory's Candler School of Theology as an Assistant Professor in the Practice of Old Testament and Director of The Candler Foundry. He previously taught at Columbia Theological Seminary and served as the John H. Stembler Scholar in Residence at the First Presbyterian Church (USA) of Atlanta. His research and teaching interests include biblical metaphors, the Pentateuch, the Sabbath, and ancient iconography. He enjoys teaching in local congregations and has a passion for helping to bring theological education to broader and more diverse public audiences.
