St. James Cathedral, Toronto

Large decorative front doors
Opening our hearts wide

In a good way, Anglican
With sharp edges probing us

Old, reaching out to the ageless
Making us feel our timelessness

Ornate beauty, inspiring us to find
What lingers just beyond our grasp
But causes us to rise
Above our small selves

Light through stain-glass windows
Streaming through us
Into our souls

Angelic voices, capturing our sweetness
Carrying us high above

Faces, all shades of the rainbow
God’s love, from all directions
On Third Advent Sunday
At St. James Cathedral in Toronto
