“…… to believe that hiddenness is part of presence.
I know that some say Sabbath is just about God, that it’s not about resting up to be more productive, that it should not mean “nowhere goes somewhere” because we shouldn’t be so focused on the “somewheres.”
But I believe that’s exactly
what Sabbath may be designed to do.
Not in a simple cause and effect relationship, with productivity being the final goal, but more in the sense of (seeing a) rhythm that sees nowhere-somewhere,
presence-hiddenness, as inextricably linked,
with God on both sides of the dance.” (italics mine)
