Does today's student appreciate sacred space?
Colleagues and I were recently discussing this topic, noting that many of today's students don't have much of a notion of the sacred, of a place or institution set apart from the rest of mundane experience, a place that invites silence and prayer and contemplation, a place reserved for thoughts of God.
What, then, can we do about this? Is there such a thing as a virtual sacred space? Is reverence disappearing?
