Every year Grace Cathedral chooses a theme to help provide focus and create new ways to grow as a community.
The Very Rev. Malcolm Clemens Young, ThD has shared that 2022 is the Year of Connection. From how we connect to our community through volunteering to connecting with our spirits through yoga practice or prayer, we hope to make progress in connecting with ourselves, each other, our city and beyond.
His letter of introduction is below.
Welcome to the Year of Connection at Grace Cathedral.
Even though we learned new technologies to communicate with each other, the COVID pandemic was also a pandemic of isolation. It left many of us feeling more alone, more distanced from each other and even from God.
This year we will explore how we can be more connected to each other as a congregation, how we might deepen our ties to neighbors and the many pilgrims and tourists who come to visit this region. We also hope to make progress in overcoming the acrimonious spirit of division that we see on the American political scene, and the divide that separates the rich and poor.
Through all of this we will find strength in our connection to the God who always calls us into a deeper life of holiness. We hope that you will be able to join us, that part of your mission this year will be to become more connected!
