“It is by the consecration of one special part that we are enabled to consecrate the whole. We keep the Lord’s Day holy, so that all days may be sacred; the Lord’s Table holy, so that all our meals may be sacraments; the Lord’s House holy, so that all creation may be His temple.

The special times of prayer, therefore, whether in the quiet room or in church, are not to be regarded as ends in themselves. They are not intended to be little islands of fellowship and peace, cut off from the great continent of ordinary life.

(Joan Miró – ‘Ceci est la couleur de mes rêves’)
