Day 38 - Spend some time in a church today

Even the irreligious amongst us can appreciate the sanctuary that churches provide, away from the hyperkinetic madness of modern life.

Breathe in the air of centuries. Let the shadows envelope you. Light a candle for a long-lost friend. Contemplate the silence. Perhaps even find God.

What to say to God if you find him - God is fed up with being quizzed about the same old chestnuts like evil and creation all the time.

Make him notice you with a cheeky question, like what's his favorite breakfast cereal, or did Adam and Eve have belly buttons.

Notes: I did manage to get in a quick "Our Father" at Trinity Presb. Church in Beachwood. I would have sat a minute longer had the cleaning guy not asked if I was trying to find my way to the parking lot. It was 10 p.m. and the chapel was all dark. Do churches close?
