Dear Friends –
I find myself contemplating what a sacramental view of reality is. One might say it is being open to the holy everywhere, knowing every moment is a holy moment, and that heaven and earth are much closer than we imagine. Sacramental moments, then, are those times when the holy comes into clear focus. This week’s Reformed Journal is full of sacramental moments.
We begin with Tom Boogaart’s essay, “A Sacramental Moment in Hebrew Class,”—perhaps misnamed because Tom actually writes about two moments that occurred after opening his masters level Hebrew instruction to a student with Down Syndrome. It’s an inspiring and touching essay.
