The Sacrality of the Ordinary


Religica Blog, May 21, 2020: The Sacrality of the Ordinary

In this blog, Tobias Kroll reflects on finding sacral connections within everyday life and, using the wisdom he gained during his time as a Buddhist, how to cultivate a renewed spirituality in Mainline Protestantism, his ancestral faith.

How have you experienced sacral connection during the pandemic?

How have you encountered the sacred within the ordinary? What are things we can do to help us to be aware of the sacred in everyday life, when stress, worry, or business threaten to block it out?

Tobias A. Kroll was born in Germany and views his migration to the US as part of his quest for spiritual truth and freedom. He serves as an Associate Professor of Speech-Language Pathology at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock, TX, and as an adjunct instructor at TTUHSC’s Center for Ethics, the Humanities, and Spirituality. He is also a lay leader at Lubbock’s United Congregational Church.
