Editorial Reviews

Review

One of the best things about this timely and spiritually rich book is its playfulness. Schaper writes: "Mostly we don't find the meaning, or the merry in our experiences because we don't reflect on them." Let this book slow you down. Let it tickle your fancy. Let it nourish the hungry places inside you. Let it lead you back to the merry in your life and in your longing. Above all, let it lure you back to the spiritual practice of play which is one of the hiding places of Spirit. -- Values and Visions, Dec 1997 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

More About the Author

Donna Schaper is currently Senior Minister of the historic Judson Memorial Church in New York City. Dr. Schaper describes the church as "a gathering place for people who seek spiritual nurture to build public capacity for social change." Among her current projects at Judson are developing a bail-out theater and "underground economy" while also building a public ministry training program for future church leaders. The church is also the home of the New Sanctuary Movement of New York City and of Occupy Faith and is initiating a new offensive to retain access to abortion rights. Rev. Schaper has been senior minister at Judson since 2005.

Schaper is the author of numerous books, most recently GRACE AT TABLE: SMALL SPIRITUAL SOLUTIONS TO LARGE MATERIAL PROBLEMS. Her best seller is SABBATH KEEPING. Other popular selections among her 31 books include WHEN A PARENT DIES and THE ART OF SPIRITUAL ROCK GARDENING and GRASS ROOTS GARDENING: RITUALS TO SUSAIN ACTIVISTS. Her articles, opinions, blog posts, and essays appear regularly in a diverse mix of media, such as The Huffington Post, the National Catholic Reporter, Sojourners and Tikkun.

Format: Paperback
This book is a down-to-earth and creative reflection on living in the awareness of the sacredness of time. It is written with an air of honest struggle. Schaper realizes the cultural forces that distract us and calls us to a new place. A great reminder!

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Laurie Klein on August 8, 2006
Format: Paperback
"To my hard-working mother," the dedication reads, "who never forgot how to play." For Donna Schaper and her interfaith family, Sabbath is more than a day of the week: It's a state of mind.

With compassionate wit, she de-thrones a work ethic that no longer works. She models de-cluttering. Cajoles readers to embrace all those "unfinished" aspects of their lives, to see past the clamor and urgency. For Schaper, wife and mother of three, and a "circuit rider" for over 100 churches, recapturing the sacredness of time begins with a simple commitment: to pause more often and immerse in the moment.

Throughout the book Schaper's quotable prose delights with its snap and shine, yet readers will also relish its depth. Energetic and ecumenical, she engages responsibly with current issues. For the overworked and overwhelmed she urges a gentle return to rituals, the kind that beautifully interrupt one's headlong pace--with peace.

"[P]ack your spiritual baggage," she says, "and move to the neighborhood called Enough--enough time, enough rest, enough play."

A book this good could change the way you live.

Donna Schaper has captured some fundamentals for living a conscious course...which is too often forgotten in our ever-growing quest to do more, faster, cheaper. Just thinking about ways to experience/practice a Sabbath moment is step 1....Donna provides much guidance.
