George Carlin, I think it is time to update a scriptural notion; this whole idea of resting on the sabbath. I think it was premised in a good motive; people of that time were primarily physical laborers, mostly in agriculture. They WORKED a lot. It made sense to have a day when you did no work.
Now admittedly, most cultures pay this injunction no mind, but there are plenty of places that still do. Here in Utah it is very big. However, like I said, I don't want to stop it - I just want to update it. To do so, rather than being a day of rest, it needs to be a day of recreation (notice, I am sticking with an R word). The reality is that most of us really don't do that much physical labor anymore - not in comparison to the ancients. In fact, odds are in America, the less physical work your job requires the more money you are making. Most of America's top earners are eating donuts during meetings or talking on the phone. The last thing in the world they need is a day dedicated to being sedentary!
So go recreate! Get a sweat going! Go enjoy the company of your fellow human beings! People like me (30 lbs overweight) don't need a day off, we need a day ON!
