"There are so many words that can be used to describe Haywood St. Congregation. The walls of that church and the surrounding space gives respite to so many struggling through this world each and every day. So, when asked to describe such a sacred establishment filled with stewards of this community that hold space without consequence to self each and every day for love, kindness, equity…honestly the list goes on.
I think of a unique word to describe the overwhelming spirit felt each and every time I walk through the doors of that building and into the embrace of acceptance and family. I think of a friend that I met in the blink of an eye in a place I did not know at the time as I was in Maryland training. The bonds I made with the other medics there over the two weeks of training were fast and have lasted long after that brief two-week class. A friend I have maintained and still keep in contact with loved using this word and we laughed every time, honestly, I was not sure even what it meant until I took the time to google it a few months back, assured in my head that I would never use it in context. Today presents that opportunity, however….
Indubitably: adverb of indubitable; indubitable meaning impossible to doubt, unquestionable.
The presence of God and mercy at Haywood St. Congregation is indubitably with you the moment you step on the sacred grounds of this pillar of our community. A beacon of hope and kindness for the weak and weary, sanctuary for the lost, and a voice for the unheard; at Haywood, everyone matters, everyone is family."
