Thin Places – Rivers

Thin Places …Rivers

Matthew 3:13-17, 6:31-34

Celtic Christians recognized “thin places,” as places where the veil between heaven and earth is very sheer, or tissue paper thin.

“Life is this simple: we are living in a world that is absolutely transparent and the divine is shining through it all the time. This is not just a nice story or a fable, it is true.”  – Thomas Merton.

Discussion questions…

  1. What are your “thin places” where the veil between life and the holy is thin?
  2. What discoveries have you made about God or yourself in a “thin place”?
  3.  What does the baptism of Jesus show us about baptism as a “thin place”?
  4.  What will you be doing this Lenten season to experience “thin places”?
