The Blessed Space

Blessed space.  Much of the spiritual life is finding blessed space.  And one of those spaces is the space between Christianity and culture.

It is not a distance colored by anger or judgment or righteousness.  It is a quiet distance God-born of newer allegiances to higher angels, to larger purposes, to wider circles of community.

And what does this blessed space create?

[It] breaks through our self enclosed worlds creating a personality enriched by otherness – a rich personality because others are reflected in it in a particular way. (Volf)

A connectedness that is heaven.  A connectedness that circles us right back deeply into the world but not “of the world.”
