Jonas Cornelsen, CMU grad and musician, spoke about genuine Sabbath-keeping from the lectionary texts. As Jesus pointed out in the example of the crippled woman he healed, the break we should be taking on the holy day is not from any kind of work (based on legalistic rules), but from pursuing our own interests. Max Weber (1864-1920) exposed how the Christian work ethic has fueled modern capitalism by falsely treating material success as a sign of God’s favour. Jonas challenged us to look for ways of living that allow us to value rest and justice more than work and wealth. Will we do with joy what honours God? [KH]
