Lent 8: Sanctuary

Why do we need to provide sanctuary?

Have you not heard,

Have you not seen,

there’s a war raging,

no there are wars raging/

who asks for a visa before fleeing a tyrant?

who sorts out papers before running from destruction?

who packs things neatly, when terrified?

Surely we should be able to offer an open door,

a welcome,



Why do we need to provide sanctuary?

Pause and think,

what if you needed sanctuary,

if you were afraid for your life,

if you had no home any longer,

if all you knew lay in ruin?

Why do we need to provide sanctuary?

Because we are human,

we are all human….

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
