Joy Davidman, On Sabbath Pleasure

Joy Davidman was the wife of C.S. Lewis. In 1953, she published a work on the Ten Commandments. In her chapter on Sabbath-keeping she writes these good words:

“It might help if we thought less of the dignity of divine worship, and more of the sheer fun of it; if we took over all God’s pleasures of body and mind and showed how, rightly used, they are faint foreshadowings of the supreme pleasure. Perhaps what we need, in this connection, is to revive the ancient concepts of sacred dances and sacred games.”
