THEME FOR August:
"From Roots we get our wings"
Let us not become entwined in nostalgia and snarled in longing for a normalcy whose time has passed. Rather let us use the strength of our past as ties to hold together the innovation and imagination that has emerged from our resiliency and resolve to create new ways of being faithful and living out our faith.
From our ecstatic worship of the past will become the new hybrid worship in our future.
From our history of making good trouble will become our resolve to speak truth to power and not acquiescence to lies.
From our celebration of impossible and unpredictable victories brought about by ordinary people doing extraordinary things we will become persistent witnesses on social media for political and social change.
From our survival of the deaths and sickness of our loved ones we will fashion an unapologetic belief in science and a resolve to confront environmental destruction
From our roots we will fashion our wings.
We are destined to rise above this moment in our history. We will not let our roots become our justification to be stagnant and afraid.
At Saint Andrew
out of our roots we will find our wings.
