God at Kings College Chapel

CWKings Cathe.jpg
Last night I worshipped in one of the most famous spaces on earth, King’s College Chapel. Sitting to my right was Richard Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline. Directly across from me was Kathleen Norris, author of Dakota, A Spiritual Geography. In the pulpit was Nigel Goodwin.

The Choral music spiraled upward to the latticed arched ceiling seeming miles above and the organ resonated through us into the room and upwards towards God. There was beauty everywhere, mixed with truth and goodness. Good, true and beautiful were there because God was there AND as were a few hundred pilgrims on the way towards God offering our worship and praise. Voices were raised as were occasional hands and we could feel the glory radiant, pulsating, gathering steam.

Place is important and Kings College Chapel is a good place and yet, it is odd but true that God has not limited His place to cathedrals, but to the human heart, and it is there God most finds pleasure.

Yours for the pursuit of God in the company of friends, Dick Staub.
