Canada's Premier Hub For Faith In Common Life

Be Not Afraid

There are so few spaces here on earth in which we realize that we cannot be afraid. In those places particularly, the presence of God is palpable. 

Topics: Sacred Spaces

It is a special place where I brought a dear friend whose days of life were numbered, and she had never visited that area. The rocks are solidity, the water fluidity. The trees and bushes are intimacy. The church steeple always brings us to a place of  safety, calmness, meditation and reflection. It’s a place you can allow yourself to not be afraid.
