Sacred Spaces and Familiar Faces
We know that the church is not the building in which we worship – but the people who worship and share God’s love with the world. And – we who were created to worship and serve have a longing for our sacred space. We miss being in a space that feels set apart from our day to day lives to connect with God. This is the perfect time to create sacred space in your home. This can be anything you want it to be, as long as it is intentional. Once you have identified a place (usually not at the center of household chaos), set it apart as sacred. Often a candle helps to do this, and many people choose to put items that are sacred to them: cross, icon, branches or greenery, prayer book, and/or bible. If you have children at home, let them help pick out the place and items – it’s always fun to see what they consider sacred (you may wind up with Legos, crayons, or other things that add their faithful whimsy).
Since we are physically separate, sharing our sacred spaces may help us to feel more fully spiritually connected to God and each other.
