About Us

The Desert Sanctuary

People often long for safe places where they can express their grief, confusion or even anger. Whether they are deconstructing, questioning, or doubting, it is good to be able to share without arguments or judgement. That is the hope for this group—that it is a Sanctuary in the Desert.You are welcome to share your thoughts and what you are producing while you are processing. We would rather hear your heart than your theology.We will endeavour to lean toward the contemplative and shy away from politics. Being abusive and/or divisive will not be allowed.’

Welcome to the Sanctuary,

Karl and Laura Forehand
