Liturgy allows us to remember and to practice living into God’s faithful promises of life and love, of hope and resurrection. Whether events in and around us are shattering or celebratory, the liturgy helps to give us perspective on the things that we cannot control—and reminds us that we are held fast in God’s love and God’s time, no matter what happens.
Over time, across circumstance and generations, we are incorporated into God’s loving, limitless story. There is a place for each of us, and a place for all of us.
