Product Description

The Sabbath provides refreshment, renewal, and spiritual protection for all who will obediently participate. As we keep this sacred day holy, we become holy ourselves, little by little.

—Dennis C. Gaunt

The powerful principle of appropriate Sabbath-day worship is vital to the happiness and eternal progression of the Lord’s children. However, the call to keep the Sabbath holy can sometimes lead to misunderstandings and visions of lengthy lists of prohibited activities. In The Sabbath: His Gift to Us, Our Gift to Him, nine prominent Latter-day Saints—from bestselling authors to gospel scholars—look beyond the lists of do’s and don’ts to address the true spirit of Sabbath-day observance.

This compilation of doctrinal guidance, prophetic counsel, and personal testimony serves as a sweet reminder that the Sabbath is a sacred gift—most importantly, it is a day full of possibilities for personal and spiritual growth. Learn to make the Sabbath day a delight as you find joy in service, build your spiritual reservoir with study, and strengthen your relationship with the Savior by joyfully remembering Him.

Thine oblations and thy sacraments
By , Submitted on 2017-05-13

This is wonderful content that would be helpful in teaching D&C Gospel Doctrine lesson 16. It contains nine essays from LDS authors on Sabbath Day worship. There are several stories, quotes, anecdotes as well as some scholarly information on ancient and modern history of Sabbath day worship. Even though each essay is on the same topic, the material is not redundant. It will make you reflect on your Sabbath Day worship and provide material for reflection on how you can improve. I recommend it.
