The sacred in the everyday

This space is sacred because of the faith, hopes, and dreams of those who went before us…

This time is sacred because we have set it apart for worship…

And we are sacred because we all bear the imprint of the divine.

 Divine Spirit, who turns the ordinary into the sacred, be with us in the daily routine and in the mundane. Remind us again that you ask nothing of us except to “do justly, love mercy and to walk humbly with you our God” – a way of living that makes our very lives holy. 

 In the silence now we call to mind the times that we have failed to honour ourselves and others as sacred beings; the times when we have failed to treat the world as a sacred space; the times when we have neglected to look for the spirituality that can be found in the everyday … and we listen for the still small voice that encourages us to forgive ourselves and begin again. 

 Let us keep silence together…


 Life is precious and is a gift. The world is beautiful, and we are privileged to live here.

 May we know this as truth. And what we know as truth, may we exhibit in our lives.
