With the same soft steps ...

"We are here because God -

the One who wants to be completely known -

has something to show us ...

We do not always see that we should be

moving about our days

and lives and places

with awe and reverence and wonder,

with the same soft steps with which we enter the room 

of a sleeping child

or the mysterious silence of a cathedral.

There is no ground that is not

holy ground.

All of the places of our lives are sanctuaries;

some of them just happen to have steeples.

And all of the people in our lives are saints;

it is just that some of them have day jobs

and most will never have

feast days named for them."

(Robert Benson)
