Into the Wilderness




“Here Sarah York, one of our most thoughtful and capable ministers, strikes a nice balance- between her own life’s story and that of the ancient text. Every piece invites further meditation and two, one personal (‘What are you saving it for?’) and one traditional (‘Good Friday’), are well worth the price of admission.”

– Forrest Church, author



First published in 1990 as a Unitarian Universalist book of meditations (under the name Sara Moores Campbell), Into the Wilderness continues to be widely quoted. Three selections are used as readings in the Unitarian Universalist hymnal, Singing the Living Tradition, and others have been set to music or anthologized. Several selections are included in Listening to Our Song (Skinner House Books 2002), edited by Margaret Beard.
