In a word of rapidly improving electronics and other labor-saving devices, we have less quality time than our great-great-grandparents had. The scourge of multitasking is worn by may as a badge of honor. But the health deficits that result from such constant busyness continue to plague our society in both mind and body.
God offers a sacred retreat in a frantic world. It is a day set apart from all other days of the week. It is special. It is quality time. It is time to reflect on life’s most important relationships-our relationship with God and our loved ones.
