A wise woman I know has set aside a chair and end table in her home as her sacred space: a quiet corner, marked by a comfy chair, a warm shawl, and a lighted candle.
Might your kind of sacred space be like that of my wise friend? While a part of me longs for that kind of sacred space, life pulls me in different directions now. Most days I bump into the sacred wherever I happen to find myself.
The means and method may vary from woman to woman, but the call to remain open to the sacred applies to us all. How do you encounter the sacred in your life?
This message is excerpted from a Women of the ELCA blog by Linda Post Bushkofsky. You can read it here. Today, on Memorial Day, we remember those who have died in military service for the United States; and John Calvin, renewer of the church, who died in 1564.
Do you want to explore the concept of sacred spaces more fully? Women of the ELCA offers two resources on the topic: Sacred Spaces and Sacred Space as Metaphor. Both are available at welca.org. Follow the “resources” tab in the main navigation bar. Both are available free of charge, as downloadable PDFs.
