Part of my mission here is to introduce you to resources that will help you live for Christ in your calling to healthcare. I’m giving a talk at Drexel on Tuesday night about balancing work and rest, so that topic is at the forefront of my mind.
On that note, I’d like to introduce you to Judith Shulevitz, a Jewish writer who’s done some excellent writing and thinking on this topic. Much of her work in that area stems from growing up Jewish and rejecting its rhythms of rest, but later rediscovering its practice of ‘Sabbath.’ There’s no question that we can all learn a tremendous amount from this ancient tradition, too.
You can learn more on her website, judithshulevitz.com.
