The great trees of Mamre was a special place where Sarah and Abraham would go to reconnect with God. It was a place of contemplation, reorientation and consolation. Having reconnected with God, they found themselves ready to offer hospitality to the three heavenly visitors, to receive blessings, promises of new life and even laugh at the strangeness of it all. What a powerful paradigm for us to imagine for ourselves in our day to day lives. God longs for each of us to have our own sacred place of meeting like the great trees at Mamre. He longs for us to be wide awake to the divine encounters that await us each day.
