Creating sacred spaces

October 9, 2012

Today’s scripture reading recalls the story from Luke of Martha and Mary. While Martha was distracted with busyness, Mary sat at the feet of Jesus and listened.

She created a sacred space for herself, a space where she could be still and listen to the Lord.

There’s a beautiful piece of music by Margaret Rizza with text by Pamela Hayes that captures this thought. The words are:

Silent, surrendered, calm and still,
open to the word of God.
Heart humbled to his will,
offered is the servant of God.

Here’s a video of the song:

Do you have a sacred space? Where is it and what do you do there?
