The sanctuary is open from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. every Wednesday for the Goddess Rosary.
Come share this spiritual and awe-filled experience. Mid-week is a good time to re-center and allow the sacred to surround and embrace you!
We use ancient images and develop connections with our eternal Mother, Spirit, Sister, Wisdom Herself! Goddess Rosary Beads are available for use. Prayers and meditations will be on hand, as well as incense, oils, candles and bells. Community-spoken Goddess Rosary is conducted at 7:15 and 7:45 p.m. You may come and go as you wish, and use the prayer stations at any time.
Make your own Goddess Rosary at 8:05 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month. Beads, instructions and tea provided!
Embodied Goddess Rosary is led by Judith Lavender Dancer, Minister of Embodiment on the first Wednesdays. You are invited to join the simple movements, standing or in your chair, or choose your own meditative posture.

Each morning Pastor Stacy and members of herchurch pray the Goddess Rosary, remembering the struggles of women everywhere, while adding a bead at each prayer. Semi-precious gemstone beads, including rose quartz, carnelian, and amethyst, are used for each rosary. We attempt to get fair trade beads, especially those made by women. Proceeds go toward the development of this ministry and projects that promote justice and peace. Suggested prayers included. Rosaries are made the day the order arrives in our hands.

About the prayers
In an attempt to use Biblical, century-old images and developing connections with the Holy Other, the Goddess Rosary is grounded in traditions of the Christian Church and the proclamation of the gospel, which is a vision of release from bondage for a new creation. Our God/dess Rosary is not a prayer of contrition or act of penance, but a celebration and liberation as one enters into holy communion with “She Who Is” to journey inward, outward and together with people of justice and faith.
The term “rosary” refers to the repetition of prayers, as well as the string of bead on which prayers are actually recited. One of the many meanings of the word “rosary” is “wreath of roses,” symbolizing the string of prayers. The word derives from the Latin rosarium, or “rose garden,” a contemplative place for meditation associated with the garden of Eden and Paradise.
