With my departure from the wonderful Pac NW, one thing I will miss is my parish’s dedication of a renovated church. As marvelous as the dedication of a church is, I will miss my friends a bit more.
Earlier this week my boss invited me to sit in with the meeting with the diocesan liturgy consultant. As I reviewed this rare liturgy, the reality dawned–I won’t have any part of it. Relics, oil, candles, prayers, psalms and music: there won’t be a number two experience in my story. Not in the near future, anyway.
is your dwelling place,
O Lord of hosts!
Of course, it is not about any single particular building.
