Give yourself a blessing...

Many conservative churches discourage members from commercial activities on Sunday, like going to the grocery store or the mall, as though "blue laws" were still in effect. Jewish tradition delineates four categories of Sabbath activities: cessation of work, enjoyment, study, and worship.

Some faith traditions encourage gatherings of families and friends that begin and end with religious rituals, helping extend the hours of a day of rest. Many claim that a day set apart is a haven for overworked, over-programmed, world-weary souls, including children.
