SABBATH: An Ancient Practice
Meets the Modern World

A new 2-hour documentary film for Public Television

Journey Films is proud to announce its recently released 2-hour documentary film SABBATH. Told as a collection of short stories, SABBATH explores the history of one of the world’s most important spiritual practices and its timeless relevance for a stressed-out, modern world. From the Biblical accounts of Creation, to the 10 Commandments, to the Puritans landing in the New World, to the contemporary practice of a “tech-sabbath” – SABBATH ties together our collective history, our health practices, our response to God’s invitation and the search for a more sustainable way of life.
