Sunday Sabbath allows for work

COLIN Nevin (Write Back, September 24) correctly notes that "The Sabbath is on Saturday".

What he fails to note is that the Church chose to celebrate Sunday as the day of rest and worship in the fourth century in an attempt to distance itself from Judaism and specifically, to avoid the detailed biblical restrictions on work on the Sabbath.
