    With Reverence & Joy

    Rev. Laura Shennum

    Sacred space is an intentional setting of tone, aesthetics, and worship. It is a space where we allow the spirit to move us with reverence and joy. What happens when one person's reverence clashes with another person's joy in the space? Do both have a place and can they be honored?
