Yesterday, I did something I probably don't do often enough: I went to church!
Though it was a restrained Catholic Mass, I sang as loud as I could, and I even swayed a little to the music. I figure if you're going to do church, you should do it to the max.
A few people looked at me strangely, but a few others smiled and sang louder, too.
I also heard an awe-inspiring homily--about the subject of well, awe. The priest began by suggesting that everyone go out and look at the stars at least once a day.
When he said there wasn't nearly enough awe in today's world, I had to restrain myself from shouting "Amen!"
"If people don't have Wonder and Amazement in their lives, the world becomes increasingly violent," he said. I found that pretty profound.
On the way out of church, I told him I was going to quote him on my blog. Not sure he knew what a blog was, but he smiled like a man who was very familiar with the stars.
