Churches are designated as sacred spaces and all that is in them are a means to help us get in touch with the divine. They are intended to be “doors to the sacred.” This does not mean that God is present only in sacred spaces. Rather sacred spaces are a reminder of and a place to celebrate God’s overall presence in all of creation. Therefore, knowing our sacred spaces and the various items that are contained therein is essential. They are reminders of and pointers to God’s divine presence among us. As you enter your church, or any church, pay attention to what is there and why. This will greatly enhance your appreciation of sacred spaces and help you more closely connect with the divine.
