Item description for Sacred Dwelling: An Everyday Family Spiritualilty by Wendy M. Wright...

Using the home as a backdrop, Wendy Wright brings the beauty and depth of the Christian spirit into our ordinary lives. We often get caught up in our daily routines, mechanically performing tasks and losing the spirituality that remains at their core. This unique book reveals how our normal activities can draw us closer to God-as individuals adn as a collective family unit. Though most of us have never considered our daily chores and errands a source of worship, Wright helps us see the beauty and importance of these commonplace tasks. She brings various areas of the home-kitchen, garden, attic, and bedroom, to name a few-into her exploration of the human spirit and human relationships, shedding new light on the significance of the family as the "domestic church."

Reviews - What do customers think about Sacred Dwelling: An Everyday Family Spiritualilty?

Spiritual Richness to Home Life  May 23, 2008
"House" and "home" are more prominent in the Bible than temple or church. When King David desired to build God a house, God replied, "Should you build me a house to dwell in?" Wendy reflects on the significance of this reply: "If God did not desire a personal house, where then did God wish to dwell?" (8). Wendy's conclusion is that God desires to inhabit all our lives, including our home life. Her stated desire is to integrate personal family life with shared Christian spiritual heritage. She invites us to affirm the sacramental quality of all life, and to see the face of God in all people, and the call of Christ to all people (16). Wright invites us to add "dwelling" to our collection of metaphors describing the Christian life: "Christians are familiar with the image of the spiritual life as a journey or pilgrimage or battle. ... What we lack as a Christian community is a language for the spiritual life that also speaks in terms of settled habitation. We need the freedom to imagine ourselves not only as 'journeying' but also as 'dwelling.' We need to see that we need not always enter new landscapes in order to grow in God and that we can also cultivate a settled space, making it richer and more inhabited with meaning. We do this in much the same way that we come to experience a home which over time holds within its walls a store of multilayered and telling memories communicating a wealth of insight" (16-17). There is a spiritual richness to "dwelling." Wright incorporates every aspect of a home to develop spiritual insights. For example, the doorway is a place of transitions - of receiving and letting go. The living room is a place of hospitality and shared life. Mirrors in bedrooms and bathrooms provide space for self-reflection. Windows allow us to look out upon the world and be open to it. The porch is the sacred place of contemplation upon which to consider the is-ness of things. Wendy provides a spiritual rich way to integrate Christian spirituality into the home and beyond. Highly recommended!
