Brian will be addressing the theme of Sanctuary as well as acknowledging Indigenous People’s Day. Throughout history, both the history of our country and our religious movement, we have been seeking sanctuary and security. We have sought to form a ‘more perfect union’ and a more authentic mode of worship that creates sanctuary and even makes our sanctuary more inclusive. While these ventures have provided sanctuary and enabled our movement to grow, it was at the expense of the indigenous people of our land. How do we continue to build sanctuary given the history we inherit, what is the ‘spiritual ecology’ of our sanctuaries? How does this help spread sanctuary in these difficult times where the concept of sanctuary becomes more and more elusive?
