We'll be better off if we don't divide what God's joined together. In Christ, God joined divinity and humanity, the sacred and the ordinary. By doing so, all of life is made holy. Ours is to be a mixed life. Finding the sacred in the midst of every day life and experiencing the common life we share as a sacred gift. Recently, a woman approached me after a talk I gave and said, "I'm called to the mixed life, but I don't know what it looks like."
She is searching for a workable combination of contemplation and action–”The Mixed Life” in the language of 14th century Christian mystic, Walter Hilton.
Here's a video meditation on the path we might walk. It includes some practical tips for practicing an active spirituality.
