The A Rocha Blog

Laëtitia holds a master’s degree in French Linguistics in Switzerland and a BA (Hons) in Biblical and Intercultural Studies from All Nations Christian College, UK where she was also a creation care advocate in 2017 and 2018. Her call is to be a prophetic voice in the Western world challenging people to live a simpler but fuller life; this has led her to create the collective blog ecclesiadomestica.fr for the Francophone Christian community. Laëtitia is currently living in Switzerland with her husband and three children.

Sabbath simplicity

My family keeps the Sabbath. Not religiously—as in, we don’t always do religious things. But we are pretty religious about “keeping” it. Our only hard and fast rule is no shopping. The point is, we say “no” to certain things. We step out of our normal rhythms of work and commerce and step into a new way of being.
