The National Cathedral is shaken, and so am I

Yet this one building, this National Cathedral, continues to shore up my faith in a most concrete way. The Cathedral is both solid and soaring, tangible and transcendent, rooted in this beautiful, complicated, hurting world even as it reminds me to look beyond it, to the God whose beauty is everlasting, in whose complexity lies the most simple truth, and who heals every hurt.
