Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

Everything is Sacred

Now is the time for the world to know that every thought and deed is sacred.
This is the time for you to deeply compute the impossibility that there is anything but Grace.
Now is the season to know that everything we do….
is sacred.


Too often Lord
It is too easy to get caught up in things
“not sacred”

It is too easy to walk through my day and see the fear
and the anger
the greed
and the sadness

it is too easy to see the woundedness

it is too easy to walk through my mind
and explore my soul
and wonder how the living room of my soul
got so messy

and yet this world is sacred
this world that gleams white and frozen
those wounded ones….
even this tired and scraggly one
who stares at me from the mirror

and grace is everywhere
in me
around me
it flows to me
and through me

A Sacred One
help me to make
every sacred moment
every sacred encounter
an act of worship
a celebration
