Epiphany Moments

Have you had a “sanctuary” experience? When? Where? What happened? What are you doing to keep that faith perspective alive? (Serendipity Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, page 819).

The first point to make regarding sanctuary experiences is that they certainly need not take place in a sanctuary. The most awesome experience of this type that I ever had took place in a movie theater. Thelma and Louise was the movie being shown and the song played at the high point of my experience was “Part of You Part of Me.” Even though this took place during a time of mental illness, nothing has come close as a crystallized experience in affecting my faith. Since that transcendental moment rearranged reality for me, I have never once doubted the existence of God or the regard of God for individuals. As time recedes this moment into the distance past, its impact upon me has never faltered or wavered, and I am at a loss to explain why I don't discount it considering my unbalanced mental state at the time.
