But, to me, even more beautiful is what we “go forth” to do and who we “go forth” to be. Most of our lives are lived outside of the physical boundaries of a church. Most of our praying and living out God’s will happens in the actions we do and the words we speak outside of the confines of a church. The world outside of the church is just as exceptionally beautiful. Just think of the people in your lives and the surroundings that make your life joy-filled. But our world is also very broken. There are cracks and rough edges everywhere we turn.
And this is where our beauty comes in, for everything is beautiful but sometimes the beauty is hidden by our perceptions. Every Sunday as we are sent forth, I believe we are sent forth to discover the beauty in others. It is not only the church that is sacred, but also every living being, because in every living being, God resides. It is our duty to find the beauty and the sacredness in the people we encounter by sharing our beauty and our sacredness with them.
