The weekend provides time and space as a sanctuary, a consecrated place in the week, set apart and dedicated for renewal and connection with God, self, and one another. 

There’s a need to be still, to rest from work, to make space for restoration, and to take refuge.  When we come to this place of rest, we find what is sacred, mindful of the gift of it all.

The weekend sanctuary offers the invitation to come away, let go, rest, and pray.

When responsibilities, to-do’s, distractions, and the work of the day expends time and energy, we need to refocus our attention on the gifts, blessings, and simple things.

The weekend sanctuary gives space for grace, underlining joy in the small and the big.

There is rhythm in the inhale and exhale of life.  Energy comes from rest, understanding from listening, joy from nourishing the soul, and calm from a place of peace.

The weekend sanctuary provides the time and space to light a candle,  share a meal at the table, and reconnect. 

The invitation to take a seat at the table produces connection and value to each and every one.  The sacred meaning of the meal goes deep, consecrating the place held for one another.

The weekend sanctuary is mindful of the fragility and speed of life, opening the door to seeing the gift of the day.  

” . . . and I know God has made everything beautiful for its time. God has also placed in our minds a sense of eternity . . . ” (Ecclesiastes 3:11, Voice)

Enjoy the gift of your weekend sanctuary.  

Happy Weekend!
