Sabbath Hikes

In order to keep the Sabbath holy, it is not necessary that we enclose ourselves in walls, shut away from the beautiful scenes of nature and from the free, invigorating air of heaven....During a portion of the day, all should have an opportunity to be out of doors. (Ellen G. White, Testimonies for the Church, Volume 2, Chapter 71 - How Shall We Keep the Sabbath?, page 583)

We are not to teach our children that they must not be happy on the Sabbath, that it is wrong to walk out-of-doors. Oh, no. Christ led His disciples out by the lakeside on the Sabbath day and taught them. His sermons on the Sabbath were not always preached within enclosed walls. (Ellen G. White, Child Guidance, Chapter 79 - Sabbath -- The Day of Delight, pages 533, 534)
