The very walls of the Cathedral are soaked with prayer. Its sheer size speaks of the glory and the magnificence of God. Here is a place where a world beyond this world can be glimpsed.
However, this is also a place which is big enough and robust enough to contain our doubts and uncertainties; a space where we can lay our anger before God, risk asking the questions we feel others are avoiding.
Some may find certainty here but many are still searching, journeying with uncertainty. Here we can own our full humanity in all its strength and confidence and in all its weakness and vulnerability.
