A MESSAGE FROM ABBESS MELANIA (January 21, 2021)

On this day after the inauguration of President Biden, we are reminded of Chuck Colson’s oft-repeated phrase,
“Salvation does not come on Air Force 1.”  So, whether we’re grieved or gladdened by the results of the recent election,
that does not change the most fundamental truth - CHRIST is our salvation. And if our country is to be saved,
it will be through Christ touching our hearts and giving us the grace to speak the truth in love
so that we may grow up in all things into Him (cf Eph 4:15-16).  May it be so!

A heartfelt thank you goes to Dale Liid (another good friend of our monastery) and Dana, his daughter, for handcrafting our new Store sign.
