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.

We are woven cloth

“There is nothing so secular that it cannot be sacred, and that is one of the deepest messages of the Incarnation.”
― Madeleine L'Engle

why do we always create a chasm
between heaven and earth
God and humanity
Sacred and secular?

why do we think that
spirit and flesh
do not go together?

it worked for Jesus
and he implied
that it works that way for us

we are woven cloth
spirit and flesh
fire and water

Sacred is so much a part of us
that we have within us
a little of God’s love
a little of God’s power

we are charged
with bringing heaven to earth
with making Sacred present

it’s a good thing

A little bit of God
goes a long way!
