We all want to make sense of life, of who we are and why we are, and to know that what we do day in and day out means something. We want it to matter. But the daily demands – work, eat, sleep, repeat – often lead to a life that feels void of meaning and disjointed from our deepest beliefs about faith, hope, and love.
But what if we began to see all we are and all we do – our work, our play, our relationships, our worship, our loves – as significant to God and to what God is doing in the world?
In these essays, Steven Garber challenges us to move beyond our fragmented sense of reality, and to view life differently. Once we discover that there is no chasm between heaven and earth, and begin to see the truest truths of the universe woven into the very meaning of life and labor, of learning and liturgy, we are able to understand the coherence between the work of God and our lives in the world.
This is the seamless life – to recognize the hand of God and the handiwork of God right in the middle of our ordinary lives. To see all of life as sacred.
