Sabbath Rest

The Distillery Season 3

Shaped by a society that values productivity and achievement, young people are sleep deprived, over scheduled, and anxious. In this interview, Nathan Stucky discusses how, through the gift of Sabbath rest, God invites young people into an identity that is rooted not in personal achievement but in the grace, life, and provision of God.

The Distillery is a podcast that explores the essential ingredients of book and research projects with experts in their field of study. Learn what motivates their work and why it matters for Christian theology and ministry.
