Nightly and weekly for our bodies and also allowing the soil to rest

Taking Time to Recharge

Rest is a period of freedom from labor and productivity. It is essential for good health. We live in a production oriented world, yet God demonstrated that rest is appropriate and right. Jesus led a very active ministry, yet He demonstrated this principle when He and His disciples left on a boat to get away from the crowd. Just as He took quiet time to seek His Father's will, our times of rest refresh us for times of service.

"Come unto me, all ye that are heavy laden and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
Rest for You

We encourage adequate nightly rest (7-8 hours/night for adults, more for children) and a weekly day of rest.

Rest for the Land

We emphasize the importance of rest for the soil. Land that is cultivated without regard to rest can quickly become depleted and loose productivity. When possible, leaving soil fallow for a year once every seven years has demonstrated a positive long-term effect and has Biblical basis.
