|Ken at ampitheater|
Saturday, August 14, 2010
The seventh week at Chautauqua was entitled "Sacred Spaces", emphasizing the connection between physical location and spiritual intensity. Along with the observations of Ken Burns, the cinematographer, and his bent on the subject, the discussion on the 'porch' was the importance of the UM House as a 'sacred space.' Our mission statement emphasizes our house as a place of respite and renewal. Whether one likes the comfortable chairs, the peaceful parlor and chapel or the cookies and cold drink the UM House provides a sanctuary from the 'real world.'
