Has anyone ever told you your roots are showing? In some contexts, this would be rude to bring up in pleasant conversation. However, in this context, I quite appreciate it.
Thanks to my Episcopalian roots, I'm familiar with a sacristy and spent a fair amount of time in one growing up and serving in our church.
This is the room where sacred vessels are kept. In our church, this included beautiful chalices and plates along with the communion elements, the bread and wine, offered in and upon them. We also stored the linens used to celebrate the various feasts and seasons of the liturgical calendar. In some churches, the clergy's robes and stoles can be found here, too.
Just as I served my church family for years as an acolyte helping to prepare the communion table, it is a pleasure to offer you a seat at this holy, virtual table. Each month I will spread before you a small feast to satisfy your body, mind and spirit and to bring healing to your very soul.
Each month will offer a variety of content, organized by theme, designed to nourish you and make you hungry for more. This will include a note about the chosen theme, a devotional, a featured spiritual practice (for both adults and families as applicable), a guided meditation, education on an essential oil (with a bonus roller ball or diffuser blend as applicable) and education on a fruit, vegetable, herb/spice or wild food (with a bonus recipe as applicable).
We are putting the finishing touches on this subscription site and it will be available soon. Send us a note here if you'd like to be notified as soon as it is live.
He makes grass grow for the cattle, and plants for people to cultivate - bringing forth food from the earth: wine that gladdens human hearts, oils to make their faces shine, and bread that sustains their souls. Psalm 104:14-15
