The Dissolution of the Sacred / Secular Divide, Part 4: God Presence

An all-too-common misperception in the church is that real spirituality is the purview of monks, ministers, and missionaries. Culturally, we are in the habit of separating the sacred from the secular – an indication, no doubt, of the extent to which we have segregated God from the mainstream of ordinary life. What, after all, makes something sacred? Sacredness rests simply in being set apart to honor God….God’s presence makes all things – including time & space – holy, and God is present always, everywhere. All of life is holy when we recognize God’s presence in it.
