Pastor’s Log – Day 64775

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.  2016-10-19_14-03-03Would 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.

‘Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life? And why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? Therefore do not worry, saying, “What will we eat?” or “What will we drink?” or “What will we wear?” For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things; and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. ‘So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today.Matthew 6:25-37

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.
