“Relentlessly, graciously, He moves through every mundane moment of our lives, using all that is ordinary to transform us into glory. He replaces bondage with freedom, apathy with purpose, despondency with joy. All in the midst of our regular routines. This is what pleases God.”
—Kari Patterson (Sacred Mundane)
“Sacred Mundane” is the theme of our home, the soundtrack of our lives, the drum beat of Kari’s heart. It’s more than a book (or a blog), it’s a shorthand way of saying we’re following Jesus in every square inch of our lives in every square inch of His world. Since it’s all His, let us happily live like it.
Last weekend we joined some dear friends for a “Mountain High, Valley Low” conference, helping post-college grads make sense of why we live in the “valley lows” while longing for the defining and exhilarating highs of mountain-top experiences with God.
Wish I had some photos to share of our time with some people we’ve known since the real life beginning of this journey into the Sacred Mundane (hey Scott & AJ!). For the conference our friend Jeremiah Wilson captured and edited this video, where Kari gives the essence of Sacred Mundane, distilled for a strategy for real life:
