Amazing Grace

Rev. Jennifer Dalton

What would the world look like if we all behaved as though we believed in Grace? How would we treat our neighbors? How would we treat ourselves?

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!
