Thin Places #1

So Thin

Psalm 50:1-6
Mark 9:2-10

Walls so thin you can hear so well
you can almost see through them.
We’ve been there…
Maybe it was our first apartment,
or the only motel we could find
in some isolated, one-horse town.
And suddenly we learn more about our
neighbors than we ever wanted to know—

Then, there are those places of thinness
between our very existence
and some other reality.
Places where we
can almost see eternity,
touch the holy,
and we feel sacredness
deep in our bones!

Thin places between now and then,
where the lives we live are
called into light and being.
Thin places where
we find we are no longer who we were,
but who we are.
Thin places where
we discover we are approved
by all that is holy.
