The London bus advert proclaimed:

“There is probably no God, now stop worrying and enjoy life.”

Here, the door was left open to a sacred space.

Three young men are named as killed in Afghanistan. A town looks for ways to mourn such lost youth.

St Peter’s is open and ready, seen as a sacred space. Set aside for such times.

The TV camera’s were looking for expressions of loss and reaction. They seek  individuals – those who know the family; those who understand loss and pain; those who need to leave a mark of their grief or a heart felt prayer.

Sacred space is set aside, for the possibility or probability. We cannot, we will not waste our cries on nothing or commit them to a void.

A humbly offered sacred space.
