I have been wandering the land in search of a sacred place. I have come across much that makes me ponder my existence, but nothing that has been truly set aside as sacred or holy. Seeing this lack of holy and sacred space, I have taken it upon myself to construct one from the materials of the earth with a glimmer of the brightest material found in the darkest nether regions. As I began construction, the task seemed endless. Would I have enough material? Could I build the entire thing of quartz? Knowing what is said in the book of Matthew, chapter 6, verse 25-34, I decided not to worry.
Unfortunately during construction and in a fit of hungry rage, I accidentally demolished the side of my steak-production machine, unleashing a stampede within my home. I will need to fix this in the days to come. Others may wonder “Who let the cows out?”. It was me.
I have finally found everything needed to complete the exterior of this cathedral. This sacred space, set apart, will serve as a beacon of hope for all who come here.
Unfortunately, upon finishing the project, I was visited by some very unexpected and unwelcome guests. I must do more to ensure the survival of this space and that it is not destroyed by the creeping forces of evil among us.
