Making Sacred Spaces Together
Greetings from UUCL! While we are away from the church building, making space for the sacred in our own lives is more important than ever. This week, we are inviting you to turn your attention to the places and spaces that help you connect to what is sacred in your life. This could be a home altar, a kitchen table, a special quilt in a corner, or a familiar tree. Peter Mayer’s beautiful song “Everything Is Holy Now” helps illustrate our approach to this.
Whatever that place is for you, we have invited you to pick up materials from UUCL to add to it – water from our Water Ceremony, a candle from our chalice, and special kits for children and youth – which we hope will help you stay connected to our church community. We will return again and again to these sacred spaces in worship and faith development this year. Today from 5-6:30PM, UUCL members and staff will again be on the sidewalk helping you select those materials. See below for more details and instructions.
Share Your Photos of Your Sacred Space
For our next service, we would love to see: how are you spending time with and adding to your sacred spaces and places? We invite you to take a picture of your sacred space to share with the congregation. Send it to Lenore at Lenore by Friday at 5PM, subject line “sacred photo.” Include one phrase/sentence to accompany your image—anything you’d like. We will see glimpses into one another’s sacred spaces on Sunday during worship: one more way of coming together as a spiritual community even from afar. We will also share on our church Facebook page, so please include in your email if you do NOT give permission for your photo and words to appear in a slideshow there.
Here is Lenore’s photo, to give you an idea:
