When Denominations Dance: Sacred Space in Review

I’m sitting across from Rev. Travis Enright at the Popular Bakery. At this favourite community haunt, we are reviewing last Sunday’s Sacred Space gathering at St.Faith’s, led by The Bleeding Heart. And we are eating some of the city’s best sandwiches.

I have the sandwich Travis wishes he ordered. I offer to trade half of my sandwich. Now I am enjoying variety. Half house special, half ciabatta. This fusion is my best-case scenario, and it’s not a bad metaphor for last Sunday’s event.

When denominations dance, it can be clumsy. We can step all over each others’ feet. We can stumble and fall. But if the music is just right, and we know who is leading at each moment, the dance can be beautiful. A miracle, even. But it takes listening, sensing and responding.
