Why are we called Sanctuary For Scottsdale?
Sanctuary has traditionally meant to be a place of protection and refuge for fugitives. Grabbing hold of the horns of the altar in the temple was a way for fugitives to claim sanctuary or protection from those who would pursue and kill them. No one was allowed to hurt the person who sought refuge in the sanctuary.
Many church bodies say everyone is welcome, but when you investigate further, you discover that is not necessarily the case. We welcome and offer respect to all people, no matter where they are on their spiritual journey. We endeavor to help people become all that God created them to be.
We all need a sanctuary; a shelter, a safe place to feel love, get restoration, find peace, regain alignment with God, gather perspective, refocus, find and offer trust.
We strive daily to be the essence of John Thompson’s and Randy Scruggs’s hymn “Sanctuary”: “Lord, prepare me to be a sanctuary, pure and holy, tried and true. With thanksgiving, I’ll be a living sanctuary for You.”
