Finding Your Thinplace

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the movie “Chariots of Fire,” Eric Liddell says, “God made me fast. And when I run, I feel his pleasure.” Where do you feel God’s pleasure? Where do you feel God’s presence in your life? That’s your thinplace. The word “thinplace” is a Celtic term for a place where the veil between heaven and earth is thin — a place where heaven and earth seem to touch. It’s the place you experience God and feel God’s presence most easily. Everyone has experienced thinplace. It might be on the beach or in the mountains. It might be when you’re watching a sunset. It might be when you create something or when you run or ride your bike. The Celtic Christians believed there were specific physical places that were thinplaces, and these became places of prayer. We’ll begin to discover where we feel God’s pleasure, and we’ll build personal and corporate practices to continue the discovery after the NYWC.
