Shabbat - Joy or Legalism

This coming Friday night I will be teaching on the Shabbat (Sabbath) at the American Church of Paris at 7:30pm on Friday, Feb. 13th (I am definitely not superstitious). Hopefully, it will be the first in a series of teachings/discussions of the Feasts of the Lord and what relevance they have to the Jewish and Gentile believers in the body of Messiah today. Are these feasts valuable roots to a tree of life or outdated legalisms that push out God's grace from our lives? Many Christians are sure that a Sabbath day of rest is not for them, but how and why have we gotten to that point? Anyway, the Sabbath can only be on Sunday, right? Is the Sabbath made for man as Yeshua, Jesus, said and what does that mean? What has western culture lost when rest and development of community that thrives on rest is removed from the picture? What are your thoughts on this? I can include them in my time of sharing this Friday. Shalom. David Schneier
