Wednesdays are Back in the Day

ROCKLAND — “Back in the day,” churches were left unlocked and open to all passers-by who wanted to drop in to rest their weary feet, their heavy hearts, or their tortured souls.

For many years now, folks have lamented that churches are locked except for scheduled services, events, and activities. It’s true; churches have had to lock their doors as a result of robberies and/or vandalism leaving a void for people seeking a silent, peaceful space to meditate, pray, or seek a calm asylum from the pace of a hectic, or stressful day.

Heard of “Throwback Thursday” on Facebook? Well, welcome to "Throwback Wednesdays” at Rockland Congregational Church. Every Wednesday, from 3:30 to 8:30 p.m., the sanctuary is open to any who want a quiet, calm spot to rest, pray, meditate or just do a little wool gathering. It’s open to all, regardless of faith or philosophy. The church is located at 180 Limerock St. in Rockland.
