Sabbath Walk

The story is told of a South American tribe that

went on a long march, day after day, when all

of a sudden they would stop walking, sit down

to rest for awhile, and then make camp for a couple

of days before going any farther.

They explained that they needed the time of rest so that their souls could catch up with them.
