The elements of brick, metal and wood about this passage caught my attention as I sauntered through the cathedral. The juxtaposed hues and textures drew me in… so close that I was nearly asked what my intentions were. I had no intention of going through this passageway that was obviously off limits to a solemn passerby like me.

Upon closer investigation, and deeper thought, I set out to simply name this ‘brick, metal and wood.’ For whatever reason, ‘hellfire and brimstone’ came to my attention. Maybe it had a ring to it or maybe these darker elements reminded me of heavier parts of my own history that were overshadowed by many a ‘hellfire and brimstone’ lesson rather than on the love and grace of God for even me; a notorious wrongdoer.

Whatever it may be, I know that there is more to life than the elements that we find ourselves surrounded by in our present settlement – brick, metal (or iron ore for you Settlers fans out there) and wood. I’m hopeful for an eternal future that is the exact opposite of hellfire and brimstone – thanks to the redemptive work of Jesus Christ in my life. You too can experience this if you so choose.
