This morning’s reflection is inspired by a recent reading of Isiah 58: 13 and 14.
I started reading to prepare a sermon about the importance of keeping the Sabbath sacred. But as is often the case, the longer I meditated on the passage especially in the context of all Scripture, my thoughts expanded to identifying other sacred things that are important to keep holy. From the musings, three categories emerged: Sacred Places/Spaces, Sacred Times, and Sacred Things (I’m still contemplating a more fitting title for the third category.).
My developing thoughts on the importance of recognizing sacred things and keeping them consecrated are noted on the attached chart. Double click the link below to view the chart.
