Highland’s Justice Ministry Group is pleased to partner with Kentucky Interfaith Power and Light to present an evening called “24/6: A Prescription for a Healthier, Happier Life” on Saturday, November 10, with Dr. Matthew Sleeth, author of Serve God, Save the Planet. Dr. Sleeth will present on November 10 at 6:00 p.m. in Highland’s Fellowship Hall. This event is free and open to the public. Donations are appreciated.
In his brand new book 24/6, Dr. Matthew Sleeth describes our symptoms, clarifies the signs, diagnoses the illness, and lays out a simple plan for living a healthier, more spiritual life in a digitally-dazed, always-on world. Sleeth shares how his own family was dramatically transformed when it adopted Sabbath (as in restraint—intentionally not doing everything all the time just because we can) practices and helps readers better understand how their own lives can be transformed—physically, emotionally, relationally and spiritually—by adopting the 24/6 lifestyle.
Of 24/6: A Prescription for a Healthier, Happier Life, Eugene H. Peterson, (author of The Message) has said “Matthew Sleeth has crafted a compelling invitation to consider and participate in Sabbath-keeping, an invitation that is, in my experience, without peer.”
Matthew Sleeth, a former emergency room physician, treated a growing number of patients with physical symptoms from working too much, consuming too much, and having too little time to focus on their faith and families. Following a new calling, Dr. Sleeth resigned from his position as chief of the medical staff and director of a busy ER to teach, preach, and write about the biblical call for a 24/6 life.
A highly sought after speaker, Dr. Sleeth has spoken at more than 1,000 churches, campuses, and events in the last five years, including Joel Hunter’s Northland in Orlando, and the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. His other books include Serve God, Save the Planet: A Christian Call to Action and The Gospel According to the Earth: Why the Good Book is a Green Book. Dr. Sleeth lives in Lexington, Kentucky, with Nancy, his wife of 31 years, and their two grown children.
