Sacred Spaces

What are your sacred spaces? In a recent sermon, the minister asked that question, so I got to thinking about the places that nourish my soul. Certainly churches, cathedrals and shrines can nurture the spirit, but my favorite places for peace and meditation are outdoors. As I mentioned in an earlier post, water in some form is a necessary feature, especially salt water. Here are some of my favorites, although there are many others.

Tell me about your sacred places.

    My special sacred place is lying on a comfy lounge chair on my patio – I like half in the shade and half out. Which half just depends. I always have a book but I usually fall asleep.

    Nancy, you’re lucky. Our Texas patio has too many mosquitoes.
