Rummaging As Spiritual Practice

An excellent rumination on rummage sales from a guest poster at the Daily Episcopalian: it contains intriguing glimpses of how a church has dealt with change and incorporation of new members as well as pricing and sorting “stuff.”

I’ve never been a big fan of church fundraisers, but for various reasons I’ve spent the past few months helping organize a rummage sale at church. To my surprise, the process has been something of a spiritual practice for me and I think for others involved: A spiritual practice, i.e. something we do that helps us to be more open to the Holy Spirit at work in our common life, and to become more and more available to God.
