Creating a Quiet Place

Posted by Al Hathaway Friday, June 19, 2009

In the lives of everyday people it is sometimes difficult to find a quiet place.

A place where you can go "up on the roof" and get away from the confusion, the hectic pace, the issues that confront one's life, or the maddening noise of our modern society and our cultural lifestyles.

Where is your quiet place?



Where is your place of spiritual healing? Where do you go to recharge your batteries? Where do you meditate? Where do you pray?

One of the most amazing places to seek peace is through the work of Rev. Dr. Robert H. Schuller. His ministry has spanned over 50 years and through his creative genesis and with divine inspiration has made a bold attempt to develop a quiet place, a spiritual place.

A place where persons of all faiths and religions can go and find solitude, peace and pray.

His religious philosophy is strongly influenced not only by the Biblical account of Jesus, but also be the "power of positive thinking."

Therefore, through the design of The Crystal Cathedral and its campus, you catch a glimpse of a place, a vision, a spiritual kingdom that seeks to usher one into the presence of God.

Yours may not be on such a grand scale. It may be a secret closet. It may be an altar in the corner of a room. It may be an attic space.

Nevertheless, everyone should set aside a space, a place, a destination made Holy by prayers and praise where God can come and visit you and sup with you.

Jesus is always standing at the door knocking waiting to be invited into your heart, mind and soul.

Peace!

  2. I believe it is important that we retreat inwardly and be free of distractions at least at some point of the day. Going inside of yourself means giving God praise to me that even if there is havoc going on around me because I have come to a point where I am able to surrender and talk to God wherever I am. Since I live alone my whole house is a place of worship for me! I realize that it is a gift from Christ and for me quieting my mind and thoughts by calling HIS NAME gives me peace.

  5. Our bodies, minds, and spirits are the temple in which God inhabits. We must learn to praise His presence in us and the world.
