A weekly date with God

Fly Fishing and The Sabbath

Fly Fishing and The Sabbath

For Dale, the Sabbath is more than a belief; it's a lifestyle. He explains how his love for the Sabbath reminds him of his passion for fly fishing.

Even though “I’m too busy!” has become the catch phrase of the twenty-first century, which is often “a boast disguised as a complaint”[1], scientists are discovering that we perform better and achieve more if we take a break[2], [3].

Seventh-day Adventists believe God gave us the secret to performing our best when He asked us to, “Remember the Sabbath day . . . on [the seventh day] you shall not do any work” (Exodus 20:8-10).

For Adventists like Natalie Nawaikalou, Sabbath is the day they look forward to all week. “It’s the day when I don't have to get up at 5 a.m. and rush off to work, consumed by traffic and busyness,” says Natalie Nawaikalou, a full-time primary teacher who spends three hours each day commuting for work. “It is the day I can take as much time to hang out with God, His Word, His creation and His people, and not feel guilty because I'm not off doing something else I'm supposed to.”

Every week, Adventists have a special date with God—a guilt-free break from work and a whole day to deepen our friendship with the Creator of the universe.
