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:

Is the space that is sacred the altar shelf, or the blanket house beneath? 
Finally, a reminder: you still have two ways to access the sacred space-making materials from UUCL: 

  1. Come by the church sidewalk today (Wednesday) between 5-6:30PM. Please wear a mask (nose and mouth) and keep at least 6 feet between you and others. Please bring (if you can): a cloth or other re-usable bag. We will help you “upcycle” it as your worship kit bag. 
  2. If you cannot come in person but would like a sacred space-making kit, or if you know someone at UUCL who would, please email Lenore the name(s) of all household members and address (Lenore@uuclonline.org). We will gladly make and bring you a kit.
