The Sacramental filled Life

Incarnational communionThe Incarnational Tradition or the Sacramental Filled Life embraces the reality that the presence of God makes things and places sacred. As when Moses is instructed to remove his sandals because he is standing on Holy ground.   God is present through the Church sacraments.  In the Eucharist we celebrate sitting at the table of the Lord.  Through Baptism we enter His Kingdom.

The Incarnational traditions also embraces the presence of God wherever He makes Himself visible through His creation.   There is no accident that we are awed by the night sky or thrilled by the brilliance of a sunset.  The Sacramental Filled Life also offers itself as a,  “living and holy sacrifice” (Romans 12:1) so that God might be visible to the world.  “The quest is sacramental.  It is the process by which the substance of our everyday reality becomes transformed.” Steve Charleston The Four Vision Quests of Jesus
