The In-Between Spaces

These three holiest days of the Christian faith (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday) each have their own liturgical happenings, but if you’re like me, you might observe that there is also a lot of seemingly empty and awkward “in-between time” during these three days, as well.

Perhaps you’re opening this email after all the drama of Good Friday has unfolded. Or, maybe you’re reading this e-news in the solitude and mystery of the “not-yet” of Holy Saturday morning, when the weeping of Good Friday is over but the joy of Easter morning hasn’t yet occurred. Or, perhaps you’re scrambling for the link to the Easter Morning online worship at 9:58 a.m. on Easter Morning.

Wherever you find yourself in this Holy weekend, perhaps you’ll notice God’s presence most strongly not in the worship or the gatherings, but in the in-between spaces. Theologians call these liminal spaces. Richard Rohr, a modern Roman Catholic mystic, notes the spiritual importance of these strange in-between spots. He writes: “All transformation takes place here. We have to allow ourselves to be drawn out of ‘business as usual’ and remain patiently on the ‘threshold’ (limen, in Latin) where we are betwixt and between the familiar and the completely unknown. There alone is our old world left behind, while we are not yet sure of the new existence. That’s a good space where genuine newness can begin. Get there often and stay as long as you can by whatever means possible.” Between the liturgies, between the busy-ness of this spring weekend, may you find liminality, a threshold, for God to begin a new work in you.

Despite legal changes and racial integration, this gathering will explore how the sin of racism still pervades our society, seeking to increase racial understanding, healing and reconciliation. We’ll examine how racism has become embedded in our culture, structures, and unconscious biases. We will also examine our own role in the maintenance of systems of privilege.
