It’s easy to hit the right notes,
but hard to make music…
Last week we were honored to accept an invitation to Spiritual Direction Colorado’s annual conference.
When Terry Hershey spoke on sanctuaries my mind immediately focused on liturgical spaces, churches and chapels, temples, mosques and synagogues, prayer gardens and cemeteries, house chapels and prayer corners: our traditional spaces for worship and prayer. Hershey had something more in mind.
I had never thought of the possibility of ‘being sanctuary’ or being an ‘ad hoc sanctuary.’
Hershey cradled a holding cross crafted out of plum wood in hand. “This is a portal into a sanctuary, a sanctuary perhaps without any words, just tender presence to each other….”
I ask myself: Can I be a portal to someone’s sanctuary, or even: Whose sanctuary will I or may I be?
Terry Hershey’s Book is Creating a Space for Grace in your life.
