21st century living is hectic. Getting the right 'life balance' between rest, work and play seems almost impossible.
In five interactive sessions, Life Balance aims to help groups explore how to build Sabbath time into the crazy pressures of everyday life, and how 'Sabbath attitudes' can transform the way we spend our time.
Each session contains enough material for a 90-minute session and includes guidelines for group study, with full background notes for leaders, interactive activities, questions for discussion and multimedia ideas, and ideas for practical action.
Robert Warren was Team Rector of one of the largest and fastest growing churches in England, St. Thomas Crookes. In 1993 he succeeded John Finney as the Church of England's National Officer for Evangelism. In 1998, he joined Springboard, the Initiative for Evangelism of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York. He is the author of a number of books including Building Missionary Congregations and co-author of the Emmaus course.
Sue Mayfield writes teenage fiction. Her recent novels include Blue, Voices and Damage. She regularly leads workshops and creative writing sessions and has extensive experience of working with young people.

'In a frantic, driven culture few studies will prove more rewarding and liberating than these rich, practical explorations of how Sabbath principles can re-order our time, refocus our priorities and refresh our spirits.' -- Mark Greene, Director, London Institute for Contemporary Christianity
'Keeping the Sabbath Holy is not just another commandment conveniently forgotten in the society that loves being busy; it is a gift of God in creation: a way of restoring balance to life. Rediscover it here. A free Holy-Day is guaranteed with every purchase!' -- Stephen Cottrell, Bishop of Chelmsford
