"As you go about your Sabbath day today—and every Sunday—remember that it is a day of do’s, not a day of don’ts. This is a view of the Sabbath we have to grow into. Restricting ourselves in some ways on Sundays brings freedom, expansiveness, and understanding we would not have had if we treated Sundays like every other day. #HisDay"
