The Seamless Life : A Tapestry of Love and Learning, Worship and Work
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 – matters. But the daily demands – work, eat, sleep, repeat – often lead to a life that feels void of meaning and dis-jointed from our deepest beliefs about faith, hope, and love. Steven Garber challenges us to move beyond our fragmented sense of reality and 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.
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, labour, learning and liturgy, we are able to understand the coherence of the work of God and of 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.
And to understand that it all matters.
