Sabbath economy

If we are to build something like a Sabbath economy, we must devise ways to extricate ourselves from current practices that lead to stress, exhaustion, injustice, and destruction so that we can better participate in God’s ongoing care. Our security and peace do not reside in financial barons, marketing wizards, or globetrotting investors but in the face-to-face responsibility we demonstrate to each other. Only as we clearly see and patiently learn to appreciate the gifts of God that we are to each other will we develop the economic practices that foster mutual delight.
