When we were in Maine this summer we visited the most amazing place. The church above sat right on the water. Gorgeous architecture nestled in to perfect scenery. In the summer, in fact, the congregation meets in a space outside and soaks in the rocks and waves throughout the service.
I feel, this week, like I have been called upon to prayer a lot. And we aren’t really a family that does a lot of traditional praying. We have a friend from college who has been battling and beating aggressive cancer for six years. Yesterday we learned that he is really sick again. We have good friends who just lost their 15 year old dog, their ‘first baby’ as they call him. The news of world is heavy and scary to watch. While the fall air is full of beauty right now, it also feels full of sadness.
In lieu of bent knee prayer, I offer this picture of a beautiful space where prayers are abundant. Perhaps this is what the universe needs right now.
