Sacred Space Quotes
The kingdom of God is within you. -Jesus (Luke 17:21)

We want a place where the beauty of nature and the noblest pursuits of man are in a sweet harmony. Our temple of worship is there where outward nature and human soul meet in union. - Tagore

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul. - John Muir
 
Your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again.- Joseph Campbell

When humans participate in ceremony, they enter a sacred space. Everything outside of that space shrivels in importance. Time takes on a different dimension. Emotions flow more freely. The bodies of participants become filled with the energy of life, and this energy reaches out and blesses the creation around them. All is made new; everything becomes sacred. - Sun Bear (Chippewa)

A person will worship something, have no doubt about that. We may think our tribute is paid in secret in the dark recesses of our hearts, but it will out. That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our lives, and our character. Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping we are becoming.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

632802: Sharing Sacred Space: Interreligious Dialogue as Spiritual Encounter Sharing Sacred Space: Interreligious Dialogue as Spiritual Encounter
By BenoÎt Standaert / Liturgical Press

If interreligious dialogue is to bear fruit-the fruit of mutual understanding, respect, and peace-it needs to be rooted in the specific spiritual space or milieu of each religious tradition. For Christians, that milieu is "Jesus space," a space shaped by faith in the paschal mysteries and nurtured by prayer, study, and love. With Jesus space as his starting point Benoit Standaert invites us to join him as he visits different religious spaces-those of Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, and agnostics. If we are willing to enter into and even dwell for a time in another spiritual space, we will be able to return to the space we call home, enriched by the gifts we have received and prepared to live in peace with those who dwell in a spiritual space that is very different from our own.
