Every year Grace Cathedral chooses a theme to help provide focus and create new ways to grow as a community.
In this moment of tremendous change and challenge, all of us need healing in some way or another. There is simply no going back to what we were before. We need to hold on to what we have learned – to the new habits that are sustaining us – but we also need to be made new. Join us this year as we explore healing together through worship, the arts, civic conversation and service.
The Very Rev. Dr. Malcolm Clemens Young has shared that 2021 is the Year of Healing. His letter of introduction is below.
Welcome to the Year of Healing at Grace Cathedral.
During this time we hope to contribute to bodily and emotional health, to a greater connection both to the natural world and to other people who differ from us. In these difficult days we will contribute to spiritual healing that is so desperately needed.
We are recovering from a global pandemic and economic crisis that have further uncovered inequality and injustice that have been a lasting part of our society. After a political season of unparalleled acrimony, we seek to be agents of healing in this country. As a community this year we will be exploring how we can begin to heal ourselves, the earth, our local ecosystems, society, our family and other relationships.
