'With what can we compare the Kingdom of God, or what parable will we use for it? It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth- yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in the shade.'
Mark 4:30-32

We all have our stories. Each of us found our way to Saint John’s Cathedral and the Episcopal Church from differing routes. I grew up the oldest son of a widowed mom. Part Roman Catholic, part Charismatic Evangelical. My theology means I have to recognize the diversity of the Body of Christ and the grace that brings us all to God’s throne of grace. We are one body.

At some point in 2015, someone graffitied 'This Is a Fake Church' on the walls of Saint John's Cathedral. The words are gone now—but though the visible consequence of this action can be washed away, the action itself cannot be changed. We cannot change the fact that someone felt strongly enough about Saint John's that they thought it worth writing these words on our walls, for whatever reason.

We do it every year. We gather close to the longest, darkest night of the year, to light candles, recite names, to once again remember our friends who have died from living outside. It is perhaps the only memorial service that some of these folks ever have. Its story is worth telling.
