I wrote this on August 5, 2006... never got around to publishing it.
Today I walked into an old sanctuary.
People were singing... mingling.
Some people embraced me... others shook my hand... others gave me the obligatory head nod because our eyes caught each other and to not give the obligatory head nod would be more awkward than the obligatory head nod.
I sat in the back row.
I worshipped... beyond the music.
I left early.
