About SabbathPoint


  • rest from work

  • modeled by the Divine...must be OK for you!


  • a place on a map
  • the specific season of your life today

SabbathPoint Mission

To see you as you are in this present moment; listening deeply to and for your wisdom; and by asking powerful questions, to coach you to move forward confidently from the point you are today into the next steps of your life and work

What is Coaching?

Good Questions!  

That's what makes coaching 

a distinct field--good, powerful, 

laser-sharp questions 

from a coach listening intently and deeply just to you.

Coaching helps you unravel the chaos.

Coaching helps you sort your own wisdom, and see Divine wisdom, too.

Deep Listening. Powerful questions based on the listening. Action and accountability. Boom. Done.

SabbathPoint Services


SabbathPoint is a spiritually-based coaching relationship, 

designed especially for clergy persons and other religious workers 

to take an intentional brief rest from the work of ministry.

Located in Angelus Oaks in the San Bernardino Mountains 

of Southern California, we offer you a place to rest, literally...


As you sit with your coach, in person, face-to-face, 

surrounded by pines, cedars and oaks, your coaching truths 

may be punctuated by a hummingbird's quiet feeding 

or the majestic soaring of a hawk.


Give yourself this truly unique gift of a space apart 

to be enveloped in nature's vibrancy and hear the forest's whispers.

Come, for no matter what season of life you're in today, 

SabbathPoint can meet you where you are 

and help you move forward with confidence.

Your Coach is The Rev. Dr. Sharon R. Graff


I am a Progressive Celtic Christian, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, and have served local congregations and para-church organizations throughout Southern California since 1983.


I am currently a Coach-in-Training, 

receiving ongoing training 

through Coaching4Clergy, 

which is accredited to the highest level 

by the International Coaching Federation.


I know some things 

about the necessity of regular Sabbath rest--and practice Sabbath in a variety of ways.

I look forward to welcoming you to 

this SabbathPoint in your life!

SabbathPoint...A Place to Rest, Reflect, Respond, Achieve

Coaching Session Details

Sessions are two (2) hours in length, and depending on the season, include time for you to enjoy a leisurely walk in the refreshing mountain air, or read a book on the peaceful deck overlooking a panoramic forest view, 

or sit in silence inside or out, or, or, or...

This time is yours to craft as you want and need.

During your session, and at your leading, 

your coach will meet you for a 38-minute
