Ancient Celtic cultures referred to them as “thin places”, where the boundary between heaven and earth was very thin, even non-existent. We all have these moments or places – our wedding, the birth of a child or grandchild, even the funeral of loved one. Sometimes God just seems close.
What if our parish could be the thin place, all the time? All to often, people go through the motions of Christianity but the gap between heaven and earth remains “thick”. Folks have a sense that something is missing; that all of this should be more than it is. I think what they’re saying is that they want to know God in a more real way. Amen to that. Sacred Heart Parish agrees.
On March 7th we will begin our next round of Discovering Christ, a 7 week experience consisting of good food, a short talk, and conversation. Discovering Christ is for those who are searching and need an open and comfortable place to ask questions. Please watch the video and see if what you hear speaks to where you’re at.
