Cracked Shins

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, God is there.  We tend to put things into carefully labelled boxes, but God mixes it all up – and in the mess of the chaos as well as in the beauty of the order, God is there.  I like Barbara Brown Taylor's comment (in An Altar in the World) - "Human beings may separate things into as many piles as we wish - separating spirit from flesh, sacred from secular, church from world.  But we should not be surprised when God does not recognise the distinctions we make between the two.  Earth is so thick with divine possibility that it is a wonder we can walk anywhere without cracking our shins on altars."
