These include corporate worship, private devotions, and deep enjoyment of other persons and the world around us." What's your opinion of this definition? (OPINDEF)

While historically a particular day of the week was set aside for Sabbath, in this definition the concept of "Sabbath-keeping" is used more generally to refer to any time set aside to rest in God, whenever that time may be found.
