Canada's Premier Hub For Faith In Common Life

Puddled Refraction

Our dwellings are so often made perfect in their baptized reflection and refraction. 

Morning light floods down the street, evidence of yesterday’s rainstorm illuminated in the cobblestone streets. As we prepare to face the day, feet tapping the time worn street stones, ancient windows flung open to welcome the light, we stop and see with fresh eyes the daily trod path, baptized in rainwater, our dwellings made perfect in their puddled refraction.
