Where does the Church belong?

So, in some sense, the work of the members is the work of the church. In other words, getting disciples to share the Good News and to serve the world, etc., is the work of the church. But in another sense, it’s worth thinking about a nuanced difference between the church’s work and the work of its members.

Breathing light and exhaling dark

Sometimes, when looking at the ceiling of the cathedral, I wonder if those slight marks are smudges left by our angel wings. I wonder what soars up there, like an upside-down water fall, as we pray together. I wonder if the tips of our wings brush the stone. I think they do.
