a newsletter for the contemplative spiritual journey
Thin Places is an ecumenical newsletter with a particular interest in the contemplative spiritual journey. “Thin places” is an early Celtic Christian metaphor for those times or places when the boundary between the sacred and the everyday feels “thin,” when God’s presence is more strongly felt.
Now in its 17th year, Thin Places has attracted more than 3,000 readers—ranging from Mennonites and Quakers to Episcopalians and Catholics. Thin Places is available free of charge via mail or email. If you would like to receive future issues, please email Thin Placesand let them know whether you prefer the email or postal mail version.
On the third Saturday of each month, Thin Places also offers Quiet Worship, a contemplative service of sung prayers, Scripture, and silence.
