Inspired by Ottsworld‘s Good Friday post, I’ve put together a collage of my many religious encounters across the globe. Included below are churches, mosques, cemeteries, monuments, memorials and anything else that channels the bigger-than-us entities that so many worship. Whatever you choose to believe or disbelieve, there is beauty to be found here. So on this Easter Sunday, although I am not Christian, I celebrate the good that I believe religion can offer. For example, the four course feast my Italian-Catholic family will devour later today. Or the strength my family found when struck by two overwhelming, sudden losses last October. Or the safety I found in old cathedrals when I was lost and alone abroad. Yes, there is beauty to be found here. Do you see it too?
Happy Easter, World
