October’s theme was Sanctuary. In this recording, you will be welcomed into our Sanctuary, then Margaret Rogers will tell a children’s story about umbrellas and sanctuary. This is followed by a “Breath Meditation” by Samuel A. Trombore and a reading – “We Are All Longing to go Home” by Starhawk. At 12 minutes into the recording, the sermon begins. Rev. Jim Vanderweele uses umbrellas as a metaphor for sanctuary. His description: “Those who know the struggles of life move to a deeper knowledge of the trials faced in such times. There should come, if the trials of life are appreciated, a realization that we all seek the comfort of a place of sanctuary. “Come In and Rest.” This invitation to sanctuary, so welcome when needed, and celebrated when one is able to offer it, sets the stage for a look at the personal importance of sanctuary to each of us. “
