Resource Review - Sacred Space

(This is part of a year long series of resource reviews I've been doing. 52 resources in 52 weeks. You can see all the reviews in one place here)

OVERALL - Sacred Space - More faith and worship oriented resources. Sacred Space is a work of the Irish Province of the Society of Jesus. It originated in the offices of the Jesuit Communication Centre in Ireland in 1999. Being a ministry of the Irish Jesuits, it is inspired by the spirituality of Saint Ignatius of Loyola (Ignatian spirituality)

WHAT'S IT ABOUT? How about 10 minutes out of your day for some peace and quiet? How about 10 minutes out of your day to spend with God? Sacred Space will walk you through a short Scripture reading and offer questions and ideas to think and pray about. A great quiet break for in a day. They even offer a stripped down version for use on mobile devices.

RESERVATIONS Great quality stuff (it is the Jesuits after all) but again very little interactivity, pretty straight forward stuff. I can't help thinking that a little music might be an improvement.

RECOMMENDATION A great place for someone looking for quiet time, or for someone who is more comfortable looking to go a little deeper.

This one devotional resource has been the one I've been the most consistent in using for over 5 years now. That number 5 is saying a lot considering how long I'd been looking for a devotion resource that works for me.
