What is a realistic Sabbath goal?

I thought last week that I ought to publicly declare my personal sabbath goal for accountability purposes. So, I silently set what I thought might be a realistic goal to engage in sabbath from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Sunday evenings, starting March 6. How did I spend my designated sabbath time? I graded papers from about 4:00 p.m. until about 9:30 p.m. I guess it is a good thing I did not announce it publicly - until now. Marty, your seven minute sabbath is looking pretty challenging right now.


  1. You have to begin somewhere. I encourage you not to be discouraged as this is more than you were doing prior to these exercises.
