Today’s Word from Laura Canby…

We all need a sanctuary when our emotional/physical/spiritual reserves run low in the face of loss, voluminous to-do lists, turbulent societal times, disappointment, and the general wear-and-tear of life.

Sometimes all we need is a brief respite of calm for re-centering… an escape into beauty, nature, prayer.

Many people lean into God’s promises to see them through.

Some find strength amidst a circle of family and friends, while others seek solitude. Some walk the beaches or forests. Others burrow into a book. Some dig their hands into the garden soil.

After the passing of one of my favorite people this week, I found sanctuary in a song that Karl sang at the 8 a.m. service a week ago. I invite you to take a few minutes and relax into it.

And if you don’t mind sharing, where do YOU find sanctuary?
A place? An activity? A Bible verse? A song?
