Needless to say, church isn’t the only place where the holy happens. Sacramental moments can occur at any moment, at any place, and to anybody. Watching something get born. Making love. A walk on the beach. Somebody coming to see you when you’re sick. A meal with people you love. Looking into a stranger’s eyes and finding out they are not a stranger’s. If we weren’t blind as bats, we might see that life itself is sacramental. Frederick Buechner

I know, for most of us who are Christians, we equate the church with holiness. I want to challenge you to think outside of that box. Especially in this season when there has been such a definitive divide in our opinions of what the church embodies. For me, it’s finding the holy in the ordinary moments. His fingerprints are everywhere if we choose to look past our manmade constructs of what is holy, and actually look for them. He is in the mundane, the ordinary, the everyday. 

My prayer for times such as these is Lord, give me eyes and a heart to see. May that be your prayer as well.

There is nothing so secular that it cannot be sacred, and that is one of the deepest messages of the incarnation.
