Attendees of previous General Synods will remember a physical space set aside for prayer, meditation, and reflection. Within 2021’s virtual format, organizers planned a similar opportunity for participants by creating an online retreat space, Sacred Time.
Last spring, the Rev. Dr. Cheryl A. Lindsay of the UCC National Ministries Office put out an open call for submissions of resources for this Sacred Time space. She then selected the works of some dozen writers and musicians, both amateurs and professionals, from around the country. These devotions, reflections, songs, and prayers all centered on the GS33 theme, “Rooted in Love.”
Among the contributors to Sacred Time is PSEC member Janeen Adil, Commissioned Minister of Christian Spirituality. Chosen for inclusion were her two reflections: “Roots and Walls” and “Roots and Stars.”
