Our Stories

LorraineJ.2016aI came to Mountain Light as an act of defiance towards a fundamentalist Christian rehab group that required my daughter to attend church each Sunday that she was allowed home.  I could not bear the churches that were approved for her and, in desperation, remembered Mountain Light.  My daughter and I walked in not knowing what to expect and immediately I felt that I had arrived home! The rehab group wasn't happy with my choice but I definitely was.

My experience here is one of love and acceptance no matter where you are at in your life or spiritual journey. I love being surrounded by thoughtful, intelligent people who allow me to better understand other viewpoints on many different subjects and agreement with those viewpoints isn't a requirement. How joyful and freeing that is!

I understand now why I was never quite comfortable in the religion of my childhood. I was a Unitarian Universalist my entire life but I just didn't know what it was or what to call it. I can't imagine not having this loving community of friends to lift my spirits and challenge my world view each week!
