Need your help today! Want to be a part of this week’s sermon? The topic is Sacred Spaces, Holy Places and I am continuing in the Psalms - Psalm 48.
As you can see, I am sitting at my favorite place to write, the breakfast table in the @HuntUMC parsonage. I have the map of Texas laid out before me. As I ponder the roads traveled and the sacred spaces, holy places encountered, I wonder can sacred geography really be mapped?
Maybe distance and direction are the keys to travel mapping? And maybe there are other factors?
For example, places where God was encountered in a special way. Spaces created by friends who stopped time and spoke truth through prayer that changed everything. Local churches who raised you up in the ways of Jesus and sent you with blessings. Congregations who nurtured you and your family along the way. Events or weekends of spiritual growth that provided clarity, purpose, and direction.
What do you say? Any special places you would like to mention? Any sacred spaces to be remembered with a stack of standing-stones?
My list is too long for this post or for this sermon. But one thing I know for sure today, the sacred conversation that I am blessed to share each week with so many folk I love dearly causes me to wonder and ponder the majesty and mystery of GodWithUs.
Be blessed today friends. Enjoy each moment along the way.
Along the Way
