"I find solace in places I never could have imagined:
the quiet sprinkling of my child's head in Baptism,
a gospel choir drunk on the Holy Spirit in Memphis,
or the back of a Catherdral in Rome
watching the first cinematographers play with light and colour
in stained glass stories of the Passion.
I am still amazed at how big,
how enormous the love and mystery of God is --
and how small are the minds that attempt to corral this life force
into rules and taboos, cults, and sects."
