In the west tower of our church hang one-hundred twenty-six red origami cranes amidst 1000 white peace cranes. Each red crane denotes a mass killing in the U.S.A. since 1982. Overwhelming the tragedy marked by the red cranes is the hope and promise a thousand cranes bring. The cranes wing our faith heavenwards that love will ultimately triumph. They petition God for guidance as to how Covenant UMC might wage peace in Christ Jesus’ name. On the walls hang giclée of Universal Saints. This prayer corner in our sanctuary is a place of prayer, peace, contemplation, reflection, and comfort. Our aim is to set an example on how our lives might be guided by peace and love, support our fellow humankind, and show that our church is one of inclusion that supports all races, genders, ethnic groups, and religions.
