It is my place of peace. My sacred space is the church house, and every time I am there, no matter what church or denomination it is, I feel peace there.
And this despite some of the bad experiences I’ve had at church, with church people being cruel. I still find my Father’s house a place of refuge and hope. Which is why I miss being at church. I really miss going to church and participating in worship. Which is why I’ve attended a handful of churches recently, whoever is open, just to be there. I need it for my own sense of wholeness.
Since I’ve been working at the hospital as a Chaplain, I also have access to the hospital Chapel, which in some ways helps. I go there sometimes just to sit and pray.
In short, I am looking forward to the day when we will all be in the Lord’s presence forever, of which we’ve had merely a taste of.
I hope today has been a great Sunday for you. God bless you and I hope to have something of substance tomorrow.
