It’s the great mystery of human life that old grief passes gradually into quiet tender   joy.--Fyodor Dostoevsky


Dsotoevsky, the great Russian novelist, reminds us that human life is a great and mysterious adventure; an adventure which begins in the mystery of our own birth and is directed by numerous lifetime experiences. 


We grow, we learn, we love, we find a place to become ourselves and we share in the lives of everyone around us. Sometimes we are so busy that we hardly notice the passing of years and then one day we wake up to the mystery of time and to the challenge of making sense of life and of finding peace and joy where we did not expect it. 


At Dykeland Lodge we understand that life is more than a physical process, it is also a spiritual journey from one mystery into another.  We share together our joys and sorrows, our fears and also our hopes in the love that has created us through worship, prayer, bible studies, music, and times of deep intimate relationship.  We seek to grow and to realize together that quiet tender joy that is promised to us all.
