Aligning Cathedral milestones with our own
By Karen Kraycirik
When planning for the future, it is only natural to reflect on the past. Every day we trace the footsteps of where others have been, and keeping in step with longtime traditions. Sometimes there is a need to shift course and a new path emerges, things change with the times -– advances in technology, growth, societal culture, and abundance. On occasion, it is a response to disaster that forces us to forge onward, turning a new leaf –- perhaps a fire, a hurricane, a sale of land. All in all, in the life of a church, “act of God” is not a loose term. Each day is spent living out the words and deeds along the path to follow the teachings of Jesus.
As the cathedral moves into another season, the autumn of its 178th year, parishioners are invited to help construct a physical timeline of the life of the church. On Sunday, September 3rd, a large scale timeline of Christ Church Cathedral will be available in Reynolds Hall for members to add their own milestones too. Inspired by our Rally Day theme, “We are Christ Church,” this activity is a reflection on how the plot of land that sits at the corner of Texas and Fannin has changed not only the landscape of Houston, but how it has made an impact on the lives of countless individuals for almost two centuries. Christ Church Cathedral is not just bricks and mortar, but it is breath and life. Join us from 10 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. and add your part of history as we chronicle the life of Christ Church Cathedral.
