The Church a Sanctuary by Raymond A. Foss

Not merely the name of the room
the church a sanctuary
a safe place for all God’s children
to come, safe, from the storms of life
a place of refuge and strength
of hope and love,
caring for one another
as God commanded
and as Christ showed
living out his ministry
a servant, going to the cross for us
teaching us to love,
each one to the other
all our sisters and brothers
all needing a place of safety
may this our community be
a sanctuary ever
all welcome here
