A weekly day for worship has been a significant part of the Hebrew-Christian religion since antiquity. This day designated as the “Sabbath,” was the seventh day of the week, now called Saturday. It was a day of rest from normal secular activities – a day to give more attention to spiritual concerns and attend religious assemblies. It also served as a memorial of creation, as it corresponds to God’s rest after the six days of creation.
