Meditation on Sanctuary

Today is the day of rest. Today is the day to focus on what heals us and makes us feel safe. Today is the day to lift up and celebrate Sanctuary. This article from positive news focuses on the need for sanctuary in our busy lives. I have also shared our church’s mission statement as refuge is a synonym for sanctuary and the lyrics to a song. I hope you find all three benefitial in your search for sanctuary today.



Our Mission
Be a beacon and a refuge for all
Worship joyfully
Grow in spirit
Touch our community

“Make us aware we
are a sanctuary
Each made holy
loved right through
with thanksgiving
we are a living
sanctuary a-new.” – Christian Praise Song with words rewritten by one of the UU Churches in Boston.

For the Beginning of the New Year

What are your New Year’s Resolutions?  What should our New Year’s Resolutions as a church be?  How can we be better and stronger in the New Year? How can we continue to be a beacon and a refuge? How can we reach out and touch our community in a better way? In other words, can we better live up to our mission statement in the coming year? How can you help? What are you willing to do?
I hope you have a beautiful and blessed new year full of love and light.
