My Work In Sacred Space




One of my favorite conversation starters is the question, "What's been the best part of your day?" What I like about this question is the intentional interaction it creates. You'll be surprised how people respond. I had one cashier pause her scanning of my groceries, look down, take a deep breath, then look up at me and say, "right now." "You asking about me has been the best part of my day." Her bridled emotions were telling. There are significant social and spiritual dynamics at play. At the core, I think it taps directly into our need to be known and valued, and loved. I think it might, for some be a glimmer of hope, a sacred moment.

You might be asking, "sacred," how can this be sacred? We might have trouble fitting this into a sacred category because we live in a time and place with two categories for life: The sacred (the spiritual realm) and the secular (the worldly realm). But this is a false reality that has not always been so. It is helpful for us to understand, In the middle-Eastern, Hebrew worldview, they had no sacred-secular categories like we do. To walk with God is sacred. To work is sacred. To interact with our neighbor is sacred. To serve is sacred. Over the next few weeks, I'd like to explore this with you. What does it look like to live a life without the categories of sacred and secular? What have I been missing because I've been thinking wrongly about life and work? How do I lead my business and my home from an exclusively sacred understanding and framework? To do this, we will take an interesting look at the story of Nehemiah from the first testament of the bible. While Nehemiah demonstrated good leadership and teamwork, our exploration of his story will not be covering that. Rather we will be looking at a specific place where commerce, civil matters, sacred justice, hospitality and generosity all converge. Along the way, we will discover some principles that may change how we live, serve, and give in 2022. In the meantime, arm yourself with the question, "What's been the best part of your day (or week)? Be ready to listen and possibly change someone's trajectory. Perhaps you'll initiate that timely glimmer of hope. #faithgrounded #faithdriven #generosity #maximizeimpact #sacred #leadership #work #hospitality  The Moyers Coaching and Consulting
