The Temple as a Thin Place

Part 6 of series: Thin Places After God established the Tabernacle as “sanctuary” for the Israelites so that he might “dwell in their midst” (Exod 25:8), he continued to “camp” among his people in a temporary, portable dwelling. Many generations passed. Finally, David became the king of God’s people and centered his kingdom in Jerusalem. [Read More...]

As you may know, I’m in the middle of a series of blog posts focusing on thin places. I’m trying to examine the concept of thin places from the point of view of biblical theology. So, as you might expect, I have thin places on my mind. How surprised I was to see that thin [Read More...]

Living in God’s Presence: Inspiration from the High Calling

More Thin Places in Exodus

In my last post, I examined Mt. Sinai as a thin place, that is, a place where God is experienced with unusual propinquity. (Now there’s a word I haven’t used or even thought of in about thirty years. “Propinquity” means “proximity.” It is the state of being physically close to someone or something.) If ever [Read More...]

As we’ll see, they don’t exactly seem to fit the definition, though they certainly are thin. Moses and the Burning Bush at the Mountain [Read More...]

The First Thin Place

Today, I want to begin some theological reflection on the idea of thin places. As usual, I will get into the theological issues by examining relevant biblical passages. My question, at this point, is “How does Scripture lead us to think about the idea of thin places?” In case you missed my first post in [Read More...]
