It has been said that a thin place is a place where the boundary between heaven and earth is especially thin. It’s a place where we can sense the divine more readily.
I was fascinated by this definition when I first heard of it, because you see, I have experienced these ‘thin places.’ I think we all have. I can think of sacred places where I have been where I knew that there was much more there than can be seen with the eyes.
They don’t necessarily have to be churches, and if we were all truly aware and in the present moment, everywhere would be a thin place because all is sacred.
It doesn’t even have to be a place, it can be a moment, a glance, a quiet inner voice.
But there have been times and places that have taken my breath away because of the presence of the Divine.
Thin Places – God is always reaching towards us, always creating thin places where we can meet him, touch him, feel him and inhale him……we only have to stop and allow God to occupy his dwelling place within.
