Why is the community "closed" to new comments?

Hi everyone,

The name “Uncommon Pursuit” is about God’s uncommon pursuit. We believe that God is on a mission. And God has commissioned us to join him in his mission.

Yet how does God prepare us for his mission?

In contrast to what we might think, God intends for us to enjoy Sabbath rest. As Dr. Michael LeFebvre writes,

The cadence of labor and worship taught in the creation week calendar is the cadence that enables us to keep all our work framed in the joy of God’s reign over us and his victories to provide us with present and eternal life (The Liturgy of Creation, 217).

In simple language: rest, renewal, and worship are treasured gifts from God.

Please enjoy time to be with the Lord while the UP Community is in read-only mode. We’ll be open to new comments at 6am Eastern on Monday morning.

I am excited for the conversations we will have together next week!

Psalm 96:1-3

Sing a new song to the LORD;
let the whole earth sing to the LORD.

Sing to the LORD, bless his name;
proclaim his salvation from day to day.

Declare his glory among the nations,
his wondrous works among all peoples.
